Gray Wolf Games was founded in 2013 by Rick Robinson and Justin Waggle. They are launching a Kickstarter campaign in early 2014 to fund their first game, Lineage.
In alchemy, antimony is disguised as the Gray Wolf, also known as Lupus Metalorum. The Gray Wolf is the penultimate stage in the making of the Philosopher’s Stone, so in terms of the spiritual and psychological development of humankind it symbolizes the condition that brings us very close to the enlightenment we seek; however, both physically and metaphorically speaking, the final stage of making lead into gold is yet to come, so the Gray Wolf can symbolize either success or failure.
Antimony (widely used in alloying to increase hardness and mechanical strength) comes from the Greek words anti and monos, which together mean “not alone” and that’s the perfect description for the way we think about games. Outside of direct experience, games represent one of the best mechanisms for communicating big ideas. They keep our minds active and open and provide a unique opportunity for structured social interaction. What could be better than having fun, hanging out with your friends, and unlocking the secrets of the universe?
