From The Lydion Magazine comes The World is a Playground; a five-part series on gaming. Each edition focuses on a unique emerging territory–the rise of streaming platforms, the role of community, gamification, and digital assets–on the shifting landscape of the gaming industry.
Popularium was founded by a team who share a common belief—games should be fun and built in concert with the community. We go where our team knows the fun is buried and work with our community to unearth the joyful heart of a new game. Our quest for fun has led us to create not just games but new genres of games. Magic: The Gathering brought TCGs to the world, Hearthstone set the standard for digital card games, Xbox Live connected gamers on consoles—and PCs—together for the first time.
Now, at Popularium, we have teamed up to push and mix up the boundaries of gaming, trying to discover where the next frontier of fun lies. Chaos Agents is our first game exploring this next frontier. Equally as important in the development of our games is our community. Even in the earliest stages of their development, we will provide you with the means to impact where we go.
The Chaos Agents Playtest—conducted by the Altareth Chaos Broker Training Academy and their esteemed Chaos Mentors—is the first opportunity for you to join us on our voyage into the unknown, wherever it may lead us. But no matter what the result, we know one thing for certain: it’s going to be fun.
