Lantana Games was founded in November, 2009. We have always focused on children's and educational game development. We have presented our games at events like PAX East, BostonFIG, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Indie Arcade expo. We have been featured in publications like VentureBeat, Mashable, Polygon, PC Gamer, The Boston Globe, and more. Our first commercial product, Children of Liberty, was a Kickstarter featured project, and our followup game, Mondrian - Abstraction in Beauty, won the 2016 Indie Revolution Expo's Audience Choice Award. Children of Liberty is still in development, and we have also begun production on Mondrian's sequel, Mondrian - Plastic Reality. In 2014, we began working with schools like the Savannah College of Art and Design and Becker College to help students with their work and give them entry-level opportunities in game development. In 2017, we became a partner of Northeastern University's prestigious Co-Op Program. As of 2018, our audience spans the globe, with 20,000 gamers having poured hundreds of hours into Mondrian - Abstraction in Beauty and eagerly awaiting the release of Children of Liberty.
