About Us

Using the fun and addictive qualities of video games to create the ultimate learning tool

The Magic of KalqueLord Studios

Who We Are

Our Experience
 Conquering Dragons and Math


Drawing on the proven talents of a veteran team composed of best-selling game designers, KalqueLord is built on the premise that adventure and learning should go hand in hand. Our mission is to engage students with striking, high-resolution art, epic narratives, and proven gaming principles woven together to provide an educational experience that rivals the addictive drive of the world's most popular games - and we believe an addiction to learning leads to success in all walks of life.


Emotionally connecting with our audience is a necessary part of our strategy. Many on the team have personally battled the challenges of attention disorders, and have children in the middle of this fight. This means that we understand the challenges that stand between traditional education and active, willing minds. Rather than medicate the problem, our tactic is to embrace it - using the unique elements that only games present to help students bridle and control their focus.
