We’re a group of gamers who enjoy developing new ways to play and products that stimulate brain function with challenging mechanics and beautiful artwork.
Galliant Games began as a “workplace extracurricular” at Consorte Marketing, an online marketing and design firm in New Jersey. As marketing professionals, we enjoy using our talents and skills in creative, exciting ways whenever we can. While we are thoughtful and imaginative in all of our work, we wanted a new outlet for our fun ideas and healthy sense of whimsy.
Our first project was a deck of steampunk-themed playing cards, inspired by the unique, artisan-crafted goggles sold at SteampunkGoggles.com. These beautiful cards are hand-illustrated and feature familiar genre archetypes wearing renditions of the most popular goggle styles in the store. Our Kickstarter campaign successfully raised nearly $30,000 for the production of the project, with almost 700 supporters making pledges. You can learn more about this one-of-a-kind deck (and how you can get one of your very own!) here.
While we complete work on and deliver the steampunk deck, we’ll also be starting on a second project, a deck-building game called Scrapyard Junkies. In this game, players (a.k.a. contestants) will take part in the ultimate inventor competition. Each contestant will gather supplies used to build small machines. Those small machines will then help them create larger more powerful inventions such as a Mechanoman and a Time Machine! The goal of the game is to out-build competitors in the number and size of inventions created. We are really excited about taking our game-crafting skills to the next level, and we cannot wait to see what our fans think.
We’re really into the development of tabletop games. We focused mostly on developing fantastic artwork for our first project, the steampunk deck. It was an elegant and challenging design, but it did not require us to think much beyond general usability. We are now delving into trickier, more ambitious projects, the first of which is Scrapyard Junkies. This deck-building game has rules and game mechanics that require much more thought than a regular deck of cards. We love the challenge and have brought in game design experts to help us in the development and play-testing stages. When that’s done, we’ll release the deck to the public before moving on to an even more exciting project. Who knows what we’ll do next?
Ours interests are pretty diverse. Some of them include:
We’re eager to see what the future holds. We like to work with smart and interesting people, develop unique games, and keep our fans happy!
