Cryptiquest, LLC was founded in 2014 by Luke Reynolds with the purpose to make games and media with worlds that have not yet been invented.

Company Goals

  1. INVENT BELIEVABLE WORLDS OF FICTION
    Cryptiquest’s media and games are based on the question:
    “What if?”
    Like, what if you added laser rifles and dinosaurs to the setting of Babylonia? What sort of technologies, cultures, and historical events would have to happen to make that work?
  2. DESIGN FOR EXPERIENCE-FIRST
    Cryptiquest approaches design with an “experience-first” priority. We believe that focusing on a user’s experience coupled with unique setting is a recipe to great entertainment.
  3. THINK INCLUSIVE & WELCOME DIVERSITY
    Cryptiquest celebrates humanity’s rich diversity by attempting inclusivity whenever possible. This includes contracting talent from all backgrounds and tackling aesthetics/theme from multiple perspectives.
