We are Hegemonic Project Games

Welcome to Hegemonic Project Games, where we blend creativity, education, and innovation to develop unique experiences beyond traditional gaming. Our passion lies in creating board games that go beyond entertainment, aiming to engage players in thought-provoking narratives and explore the intricacies of real-world dynamics, through the lenses of politics, economy and other academic disciplines.

Each of our projects is developed in collaboration with esteemed academics from Universities from all around the world.

The journey began with the creation of our successful title, Hegemony: Lead your Class to Victory, which immersed players in the political and economic landscape of a fictional nation. This achievement fuelled our dedication to designing games with educational value, encouraging players to delve deeper into the realms of politics, economics, and society.

the element of fun, helps us craft experiences that engage players both intellectually and emotionally, while entertaining them.

Our Vision

Our vision is to inspire both gamers and non-gamers alike to explore the fascinating politico-economic dynamics of their societies in a playful and yet engaging manner. We strive to challenge traditional gaming norms, aiming to ignite a passion for learning and understanding in every player.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple yet ambitious: To develop revolutionary board games with educational value, that inspire curiosity, foster critical thinking, and encourage meaningful dialogue about complex socio-political issues. The above leave a lasting impact on players understanding and appreciation of the world around them.
