About Us

Autarch LLC is a game development studio based in Durham, NC. Our name derives from the Greek word autarkhos, meaning self-governing, and reflects our love of classical history. We think it’s an apt name for a creator-owned company, whose highest mandate is to produce things that are pleasing to ourselves. In modern times autarchy has acquired the connotation of despotism, but we have no desire to lord over anyone. On the contrary, we hope that we can best serve you by pursuing our own desires. We are gamers and fans like you, and like the Autarch in Gene Wolfe’s “Book of the New Sun”, we contain a multitude of diverse experiences. We hope that the wide range of things we’re enthusiastic about, and our desire to learn about cool new stuff all the time, mean that you will be excited by some of the same things we are.

If you’re new to Autarch, the best way to get involved in our vibrant community is to join our Discord, which has over 1,000 active members. Dozens of daily discussions range from virtual tabletop development to worldbuilding to mass combat, making it one of the liveliest communities for geek gab. It’s also one of the friendliest places on the Internet – just be sure to leave your politics behind, because the only partisanship permitted on our server is about your favored edition of an RPG.
