Advancing the art of intelligently designed video games.
We're nerds from MIT.
Gaming is our obsession.
Perfection is our objective.
Lunarch Studios was conceived in 2010, when our designers—a fiercely competitive team of math olympiad champions, professional poker players, and MIT PhD students—set out on a journey to advance the art of online games through aggressive innovation.
Dissatisfied with the shallow and exploitative trends dominating the industry, we aim to develop cutting-edge, intelligent games that use technology to create novel experiences of unexpected depth. Our products are ambitious, one-of-a-kind titles that define new genres and innovate in multiple directions at once.
As a company, Lunarch aims to blend the skill and determination of a tech startup with the integrity and craftsmanship of an independent game studio. We're committed to building disruptive, elegant, and bullshit-free online games, and we're driven by raw, unflinching perfectionism.
Lunarch was born when three of our founders left their doctoral studies at MIT to grow Prismata from a tiny hobby project into an award-winning online game with over a million owners. Our decision was driven by one thing: if we didn't develop Prismata, the game wouldn't exist. Lunarch games are created under a sole motivation: our collective desire to see them in the world. Not making them simply isn't an option for us.
We transcend "easy to learn, yet difficult to master", a deceptive tagline espoused by many games in which mastery ultimately becomes a grind of calculation, memorization, or dexterity. Instead, we heighten the skill ceiling by maximizing the richness of the emergent interactions spawning from simple game mechanics. Our games are a joy to master—a neverending rush of eureka moments as players uncover endless layers of complexity.
Lunarch operates in an ideal mid-budget space: we’re sufficiently well-funded to hire the best people and do high-quality work, but we’re not constrained by the AAA need to stick with low-risk designs for mass-market audiences. We take on ambitious projects that aim to make meaningful advances to the state of the art and serve as examples for the entire industry. Every person on our team can have a massive impact.
