Metaphore Games is an indie games studio based in France. Our current project is called Waves of the Atlantide, coming soon to Steam Early Access. Waves of the Atlantide (WotA) is a novative mix of gender. It is a Battle Royale - 4X - RTS. It focuses on strategy over tactics, yet doesn't have the caveat of strategy or management games that often require 20 or more hours to complete. In WotA whole games are finished in under 25 minutes thanks to the battle royale mode.


Early history

After many attempts at working with various game startups, I started contract work for the popular indie game The Forest which has been my sole occupation for almost 4 years (from September 2014 to June 2018). I created many elements of the game, including the procedural building system.

After that

From September 2018 to now I commited to creating Waves of the Atlantide. Original idea was to use cookie-clicker like mecanics in short games so that we're always playing the fun part of those games (which is the beginning). As the development progressed, the added battle royale mode became the most interesting and relevant part of the game, thus the cord was finally cut off from its genesis.
