About Forest Ring Games

Forest Ring Games is a young game development company based in Würzburg, Germany. It was founded in 2017 with the goal of creating competitive multiplayer games that can be enjoyed for ages, enabled through an innovative balancing technology. The company is based in Würzburg, though the team operates remotely most of the time, with its members spread across 4 different time zones in Würzburg, Munich, Berlin, Karlstadt, Kuldiga (Latvia), Boston and Fresno, California. FRG is currently continuing to improve its first mobile game Tower Duel. Furthermore, FRG develops a tool which can automatically balance complex strategic games to massively reduce the time and cost investment of game development. The tool is planned to be shipped to other game developers later this year.

About Tower Duel

Tower Duel or TD is a free-to-play, multiplayer real-time tower defense game for Android and iOS. TD has been officially launched on the 31st of January 2018. It was released in English only at first, but other languages will be added in the following months as the game gets updated every 1-2 weeks. Already in Beta, Tower Duel amassed a wide audience through its Social Media Media Channels, especially on Discord, where players arrange duels, compete in tournaments, and share fan videos or streams.

History

Max Muthig developed a Balancing Tool for strategic games during his master thesis at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität in Würzburg. During the thesis the team's showcase game Tower Duel was developed prototypically and balanced with the Balancing Tool. Since Max's thesis was completed in July 2016, the focus of Forest Ring Games lies on finishing and releasing the Balancing Tool itself and Tower Duel as the first game to be Balanced by Robots.
