BattleGoat Studios is a Canadian Software Developer committed to developing leading edge “Intelligent Strategy Games” for the PC. Founded in 2000, by George Geczy (Lead Programmer) and David Thompson (Lead Designer), the team firmly believes that Strategy Gamers are looking for more sophisticated games that also remain fun to play. BattleGoat insists that their approach to development will always emphasize an accurate, heavily researched environment assuring players an entertaining and immersive gameplay experience.
When founded, it was with the goal of re-imagining the text-based strategy game Supreme Ruler that George had written for the TRS-80 back in 1982 while still in High School. Creating a new real world graphic environment based on existing Technologies, Militaries, Politics, and Economics was realized with the release of Supreme Ruler 2010 in June 2005.
At more than 33 years old, the Supreme Ruler franchise is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) gaming franchises still in active development.
