We are NOT developing the best ever, mega cool, industry changing, mind blowing game! So if you can settle with something that is NOT going to blow your mind, stay a while and read about something real.

We are Tritan Studios, a bunch of old and not so old gamers, who have wasted most of our lives enjoying a couple of pixels, so to say we love to play games. One sunny day we came up with the not-so-brilliant idea to develop our own game!

So we gave birth to Pillars of History, a game that cannot fit the mainstream. Yes, we still remember that we have promised you to talk about something real, and not about the best thing ever.

Pillars of History is an engaging mix of Action, RPG and Quest gameplay dressed in the beauty of the early medieval European history. What sets this game apart from other RPG titles is the  lore system, which is actually an interactive educational course on medieval history in the form of a full-scale RPG game. Pillars of History will introduce a mix between entertainment and education that will set this game at its righteous place in the gamer's heart. Combine this with more than decent storytelling, action combat system, endless artifacts and you're in for a ride!

Although we put strong emphasis on gamification -  the application of game-design elements and game principles in non-game contexts, copy-paste for the win - we will not ignore the pure nature of the games. So no matter if you look for a fresh and realistic RPG with some good action and story, or you look for an educational game that can feed some knowledge to the kids, Pillars of History might be a good match for you!

Since we are a small team there are quite a lot of things to be done, but still we have some stuff to show around. We have created the stories of 7 starting characters. Each of them is totally different with unique origin and gameplay. You can check the concept art and the charming stories of those characters in our Facebook page: .

Our tech team regularly publishes episodes of our Game Development Blog in our YouTube channel: . There you can monitor our progress and learn interesting thing about the core mechanics, character attributes, skills and much more. 

So in the upcoming months our team will be on a very interesting journey trying to produce an intriguing, educational and realistic RPG. We hope that you find our endeavor worthy of your attention as we appreciate your interest.
