Subaltern Games makes satirical leftist games. They are a motley crew. Seth, the Captain of Industry (me, the person writing this), is the only full-time worker.
In the Bronze Age, the Hittites reigned supreme, though they were soon challenged by the Egyptians, under Pharaoh Rameses II.Teachers
Following the Late Bronze Age Collapse, Seth graduated from college and, while looking for employment, started to work on Neocolonialism, despite having had only minimal coding experience. He eventually got a part-time job as a teacher, but quit after six months--partly out of digust with the callous administration, and partly because he felt he could teach better through games. In October 2012, Subaltern Games became his full-time job.Neocolonialism
Neocolonialism is a game in which you try to extract as much wealth as possible from the world. Seth wrote out his business plan at a diner with the crayons and coloring-book-paper that they usually reserve for kids (really) and filmed his first promo video with an iPhone, using a ladder as a tripod, in a basement. He successfully Kickstart'd the project for $10K in January 2013 and released the game in November 2013.No Pineapple Left Behind
No Pineapple Left Behind is a school simulator and a response to Seth's old job. He expanded the team to include four part-time folks, who are all brilliant. NPLB is currently in public alpha.
There are far more images available for Subaltern Games, but these are the ones we felt would be most useful to you. If you have specific requests, please do contact us!
