We are Blankhans. We are a game studio boutique that is dedicated to lean and high-quality crafting of outstanding experiences. Our founding team consists of games, game technology, media and entrepreneurial leaders that are striving to build live services that last for decades. We value the craftsmanship of classic game making as well as the iterative world of live games. Our culture is “Fun”. We truly believe that only a team that enjoys what they are doing for a living, where the route is the goal, will achieve the impossible.

Our first live service is based on a well established fantasy IP and aims to connect camp-fire survival (co-op) with tactical dungeons (action) and an economy hub (trading).
