Description

An independent game studio based in Vienna, Austria. We focus on rich gameplay and fun mechanics, rather than big explosions and half-naked girls. We basically make games that we want to play for ourselves.

History

First Steps

Impetus Games was born in summer 2014 when two long-term friends who played many games together throughout the years, both digital and in the real world, decided to make their own games. All started with a custom 2d engine and a few hobby games, until the team decided to switch to the Unreal Engine. This decision led to some "lost months", but eventually allowed Impetus Games to focus on game play and mechanics rather than low level stuff. The team is made of Matthias, the tech guy and AI enthusiast, who started the endeavour with random experimental games based on his own custom engine, and Christoph, the thinker and tinker, who joined in to put some life into the games and the company.

Glow

After the decision to go with Unreal, Christoph and Matthias started with a conversion of one of their 2d games, Glow, which they created originally based on their custom engine. It seemed like a low hanging fruit and a small but nice project to get comfortable with the new engine. This project then evolved into Glow 3d, the new and improved version of the original 2d game. On the 14th of October 2016 Impetus Games has released Glow to Steam. Ohh, and when the team of Impetus Games is not working on games, they do some stuff for the Unreal Engine Marketplace...
