Description

Player Known Battlegrounds is a historical edutainment game about being a recently divorced tour guide on the Gettysburg National Cemetery . It teaches history about the civil war and is the most realistic tour guide simulation on the market.

History

It all started with a shit post. Steven came up with the idea for Player Known Battlegrounds after a series of stupid joke high concept game pitches he posted on twitter December of 2017. The game’s name was generated by means of deconstructing Player Unknown Battlegrounds, a hardcore battle royal shooter by Bluehole Studio and the PUBG Corporation; the idea was “Player Un-known Battlegrounds, except all the players and grounds are well known.” Therefore, the game was going to be about being a tour guide and presenting one of the most well-known battlefields in U. S. History – Gettysburg.

March of 2018 Steven pitched the game idea in his game design class and partnered with Atsina to create the game and make history engaging. They took inspiration from tour videos on YouTube, 360 pictures, and maps and scrounged the internet for as many specific facts as they could about each monument and intertwine that history with the lives of the in-game characters, each with their own problems, quirks, and personality to make the game truly memorable. The game was finished and released on May 7th, 2018
