Deck13 Interactive was founded in 2001 by Jan Klose and Florian Stadlbauer. We started as a traditional development studio and with the release of Ankh we took the Adventure Games market by storm. We build ourselves a name with creative story telling, intelligent puzzles and a heartwarming humor. Adventures are our roots but we soon moved into the RPG genre.
With Venetica we paid the genre a first visit and with Lords of the Fallen we made ourselves a name on the international stage. In the meantime we founded second studio in Hamburg which is focused on working with the Unity Engine.
In our Frankfurt office we create games with the FLEDGE Engine. It is an inhouse created tech build for our needs which gets improved on a daily base. We create games with character, currently with a strong focus on RPGs. We try to hire the most talented people and if you think you’re one them, take look on our job listings and apply!
Our studio in Hamburg is focused on projects based on the Unity Engine and has build up massive experience when it comes to economy simulations. The team itself was created out of former employees from Cranberry Production. Our Hamburg team is currently working on TransRoad.
We’ve built a game engine for Playstation 4 and Xbox One from scratch. It was hard work. But it was worth it. Now we’re working with our own tech and we can do what we want with it. We don’t need to pay licencing costs to anyone and we can expand it in whatever direction we want. Our tech team’s core programmers are adding features every day, extending the graphical powers and the editor to create our next games. Our designers and artists can use our unique “What you see is what you play” editor where they can input their assets, change gameplay, and play through the level at the very same time. And still there is so much to do to be ready for our next titles.
