Anthropomachy is an RTS that tells the story of how Greek gods, relegated to mere myth in modern times, come back to reclaim Earth. The player then personifies this god in his quest for world domination, evolving his traits and acquiring powers to convert territories throughout the world. While each god has his own specific motivation and skills, it is up to the player to choose if his conversion will come through benevolent or cruel methods.
The game encourages the player to understand real-life political and social aspects as countries attributes were measured by real data. So, for instance if a player casts a wealth-inducing power on a very poor nation it will have a much bigger impact than on an already wealthy country.
Toy Box Lab was founded by Ivan and Gabrielle in 2017 after months of planning with the focus of being a company that delivers amazing games while maintaining a healthy work-life balance for all employees. At Toy Box Lab, we believe that making games should be just as fun as playing them and that no one should sacrifice their personal life to be stuck in an office doing crunch.
A little while before even formalizing the company’s existence, Gabrielle had a dream about Greek Gods trying to reconquer Earth with their mighty powers. After waking up and filling pages upon pages of mechanics, powers , lore and everything else she had in mind, both her and Ivan agreed it looked like a great game and started to produce it right away. That idea is now known as Anthropomachy.
