Former members of BioWare, Blizzard Entertainment, Epic Games, Riot Games e Zenimax Online they look with enthusiasm to the future that awaits them together with the Lightforge Games team, as the CEO points out Matt Schembari stating that "we all love highly social and creative games, and we especially love games where users shape their own narrative. We are trying to combine elements of Minecraft or Roblox with the tabletop RPG experience to deliver a new way of enjoying role-playing games. And given our background, it could only be an obvious choice to spend ourselves to aim for an experience that can revolutionize role-playing games ".
