Ortus – Front – Title

Come and play Ortus the boardgame at SPIEL ’16!

Good news!

We’ll be at the greatest and bad-assest boardgame fair in the entire world: Spiel in Essen Germany. Find us in Hall 2, booth 2-C110!

Come and say hi to the designer. Maybe even challenge him to game. Or bring a friend and sit down for a half hour of smart tactics in a fantasy martial arts world.

Get a chance to play with the beautiful metal miniature range and ask about the development of Ortus Arena on STEAM (and soon on mobile).

What is more, we have a great deal for you, only during the fair. When you buy the board game, we’ll give you a Steam key to play Ortus Arena for FREE! That’s a huge deal.

Hope to see you there. We cannot wait to meet with members of the community.



Save the date! Ortus Arena launches september 28th

We have it you guys! The launch date for Ortus Arena. You’ll be able to test your tactical skills on our magical arenas from September 28th 2016 on Mac and PC.

Mark that date!

We have worked hard on creating even more content for you. The campaign got a bump from 10 levels to 17 ( ! ) unique and challenging levels. That should prepare you for the online fights against friends and strangers to climb the ladder to rank 1. Prepare to master the elusive Wind warriors, the spiritual Fire warrior and the lethal Water warriors (amongst others).

We hope to welcome you in a little over a month. To stay up to date on everything as we build up to the launch follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Talk to you soon.


Ortus Arena is at GamesCom 2016!

With the release of Ortus Arena literally around the corner (on Steam for Mac and PC), we are very excited to have conquered a spot at the fantastic Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

It is truly great to have the opportunity to meet new players in the flesh, before we introduce them to our game. In the final months of production, we worked hard to make the single player experience even more fun, more elaborate and more challenging. So we are looking forward to see how far our visitors can lead the Wanderer through the campaign.

Come and see how fast you grasp the deep tactics of Ortus, if you can see the value of each elemental warrior! if you can even beat one of the delevopers!

Look for us in the business area in Hall 2.1. booth A031. We would love to meet you!


The Ortus Team



Thank you BETA testers!

Hello all,


So we’ve been running the BETA test for Ortus Arena for some time now. Seems to me an update is in order!
Let me tell you some things we’ve found out so far…

From Firstlook with Love

Hello all!

We’ve just come back from 2 intense but very satisfying days of showcaing Ortus at the Firstlook festival.

On day one, just a few minutes into the fair, we were already stormed by enthusiastic gamers who got their hands on a VIP card. This allowed them to browse the fair 2 hours earlier than the rest and it’s an honor to see that some spend that time playing Ortus. From that moment on, we realized that setting up two games was not enough. Very often we had to made due with a makeshift table or holding a phone, just so we could have 4 games going at the same time in our small booth.

GDC 2015

Report from GDC 2015

By: Martijn Poels

We were invited to showcase Ortus Arena at the Dutch Local Multiplayer event in San Francisco on March 3th. It so happend that at the same time GDC was going on, so we took the opportunity to drop by. 5 days of conference, parties and games. This was the perfect place to show off Ortus Arena to thousands of gamers. And so I did.

Ortus Arena will be at GDC!

After a fantastic time at Casual Connect in Amsterdam, it’s time to spread our wings (literally almost) and fly out overseas. Over to San Francisco to visit the GDC! This will be the biggest event for us so far, so we’re very excited.

Of course, we’ll bring our A-game, Ortus Arena and showcase it at one of the coolest GDC closed events, Dutch Local Multiplayer at the Comic Art museum.
