Mangatar

Mangatar is an innovative Italian game company that specializes in social and mobile games development.

The Mangatar Project took shape in 2011, driven by the experiences the five founders gained in the field of digital entertainment. In March 2012, Mangatar became a s.r.l. company and some months later launched its first game , “Mangatar Saga”, that hit 60,000 users worldwide.

2012 was definitely an amazing year, fostered by valuable experiences such as the numerous startup competitions as well as the constant contact with users, and last but not least, the seed investment from dPixel, a popular venture capital firm in Italy.

Accordingly, in 2013 Mangatar has accelerated its growth by creating Dengen Chronicles, a mature product best representing the team’s ambitions and skills. The new game takes advantage of the latest web technologies and is a powerful work in progress, providing continuous releases of new features.

The enhancement of present-day game experience and the forward-looking efforts towards new experimentations and challenges make up Mangatar’s roadmap, aiming to get the team to compete with the main international players in the field.

Dengen Chronicles is the most engaging trading card game in the manga universe.

Four manga families are in war: ninja, fantasy, robot and school. Pick a side, join a family and start fighting! Play for free: create fully customized cards, evolve your deck and challenge your friends in one-to-one clashes or group missions.

The completeness of Dengen Chronicles lies in its specific complexity, which puts the game in a strategic position over competitors. The dynamics of Trading Card Games and Role Playing Games join together to create brilliant peculiarities:

Clash. The Mangatar team has devised a highly innovative fight mode which adopts the representation of fights in the form of manga comics and the chronological storage of all events within a custom album, in a sort of comics timeline.

Customization. The players’ deck is not randomly chosen by the system, and each card can be customized in detail. The customization enables warriors to improve their own skills and evolve.

Strategy. Unlike the pure Trading Card Games, Dengen Chronicles contains a very important part of strategy , which is pretty typical of Role Playing Games. A set of management and strategic features have been implemented so as to make the game experience even more engaging and long lasting.

Sociability. The social dynamic is inherent in the complexity of the game. In the next major release, users will be introduced to “covens” and some group fight modes which are rarely seen in card games.
