Polymorph: global success by a local indie

We won’t lie – there’s always a small sense of pride when we see former Ubisoft Indie Series recipients make their mark on the international stage. That’s the case for Polymorph Games, founded by Philippe Dion and Léo Carnaut-Delord, which already has 500,000 players worldwide.

Their medieval city building game, called Foundation, has impressed city building simulator fans, as well as other fans of the Simcity genre.

The Quebec City studio won praise from the Catapult program and stood out again by winning the 2019 National Bank’s Coup de coeur award at this edition of the Ubisoft Indie Series.

The game’s popularity got another boost from the competition which provides scholarships, mentoring, creative and marketing tools, as well as financial advice. So the 2 developers got advice and help from Blue Byte, a Ubisoft affiliate.

“Their specialists gave us valuable tips, including narrative tracks that helped the game progress,” Philippe commented.

With one of the most inspiring journeys, the studio has been on the rise in the video game industry. Find out more in this article on Les Affaires’ website.

The Ubisoft Indie Series, a Ubisoft Entrepreneurs initiative, is presented by National Bank and powered by La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec.
