3-4-5-Games is now dedicated to searching the world for the games our ancestors played. We are looking for those great games that are on the verge of being forgotten. When we find one we will carefully log and research the history and the culture that surrounds it. We will also play it over and over to comprehend what about it calls to our basic needs for strategic competition. Then, if we decide that it's a game we can help revive through adaptation, we will take that game's foundation and develop a new version that interprets it for a modern generation.
