Description

Quarter Onion Games is an indie game studio focused on breaking the barriers between both genres and platforms. This will be accomplished through addictive and fun games combined with platforms that preserve the single player charm while allowing the community to come together and accomplish larger goals within the connected games. Our target platforms will initially be mobile and PC, with expansion into console when the games best supports it. Our first game will be Warkeep, a side scrolling tower defense game that combines elements of tile-matching puzzle solving to build a keep with the traditional flair of a top down tower defense game. Two other projects are in conceptual stages that will build off of Warkeep and provide the framework for interaction between all 3 games in exciting new ways.

History

Early history

Quarter Onion Games was founded in January of 2017 between William Phelps, Dan Van Mensel, and Michael Hahn. William and Dan had previously attended Full Sail University between 2007-2009 and had planned on working together to use their training to build quality games, while Michael Hahn came onboard around 2012 to help support the business and marketing side.

The goals

The goal was to build quality games that would support all platforms. Previous ventures throughout the years tested concepts related to "fusion" where there would be a game that combined nearly all genres to allow any type of player to try it out. The theory was that by having all genres represented, someone would both enter the game via the genre they were comfortable with while being able to try out games they'd never purchase normally and open new horizons.

The projects

Warkeep, and the two other projects that derive off the earlier Imagine Nations concept, are aimed to be smaller, more concise games focusing exclusively on one genre and having a much quicker development cycle. This was in response to the many years put into Imagine Nations that had slowed down development without any sort of funding.

The future

With these projects established, we then plan on building a framework to allow the games to work together to get closer to the Imagine Nations concept. The end goal is an asynchronous multiplayer concept where many small and larger games can function largely "single player" while affecting a greater canvas with their actions.
