Description

Culturplay is a video game developer based in Athens, Greece, focusing on themes of history and lore. The studio has currently one title in the market, Secrets of the Past: Dion, and is developing a 4X historical strategy game, Polis Kratos Athens.

History

In 2013, software engineer Alexandros Giannakidis and cultural project manager Lida Mantzourani, driven by their love for games and unconventional approaches of history, laid out their idea for a digital board game about ancient democracy. And, thus, Culturplay was born. They bootstrapped their way to a game demo, which they showed to game events around the world, from Paris and Cologne to Austin and New York. The roadshow attracted high-profile clients for the studio and the commissioned development of Secrets of the Past: Dion, a casual simulation game about archaeology. This became the studio’s debut game, now available for mobile and PC. The continued pursuit of the duo's original idea finally yielded angel investment. This helped Culturplay form a strong team and develop the alpha version of its favourite 4X strategy game, Polis Kratos Athens. In 2018, the game was awarded state funding for further development.
