About Tactic Studios

Tactic Studios was founded in 2007 and specializes in developing high quality games for PC and console. We're located in London, Canada, roughly a 2 hour drive from Canada's largest city, Toronto.

Our Games

Our first game was Immortal Empire, a multiplayer, tactical role-playing game released on Steam in 2015. More recently, we released Claire de Lune, in July, 2021, a fully 3D first person puzzle game available on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

We are currently developing a brand new multiplayer game and are actively hiring for new positions to help us create this fantastic new product.
All our games were created using our custom game engine, the Immortal Engine.

Immortal Engine

The Immortal Engine is a proprietary game engine that drives all of our video games. It was developed internally first to create our game Immortal Empire, and then heavily modified to support the needs of our second game Claire de Lune. It features a modern 3D renderer, animation systems, networking with dedicated servers, and a custom physics engine. There is virtually zero middleware.

Our engine is fully real-time. All light and shadows are real-time, global illumination can be calculated real-time, with advanced material editing performed directly in-scene on production assets, requiring no time consuming bake step or asset preprocessing that might interrupt workflow.
