ALTAR Games, originally known as ALTAR interactive until 2005,[3] was a Czech independent video game developer founded in 1997 in Brno.[2] Altar Interactive was one of the major Czech game developers during the early 2000s,[4] best known for their 2001 breakthrough hit Original War, regarded as a cult title in Czechia and Poland,[5][6][7] as well as for their 2004 X-COM spiritual successor UFO: Aftermath and its sequels. Altar Interactive's successor Altar Games was a member of IDEA Games, a marketing and commerce supporting association founded in 2005 with Bohemia Interactive and Black Element Software.[8]

Legacy[edit]

On 30 September 2010, Altar Games was acquired by fellow IDEA Games (Independent Developers Association) member Bohemia Interactive.[9] Bohemia promised that the acquired companies, including Altar, will continue to operate individually.[10] Former Altar has become Bohemia's Brno studio, working first on ArmA 3.[11][12] In 2017, Bohemia announced a sequel to Altar's cult classic Original War.[13]

Altar Interactive founder Martin Klíma had earlier left to produce Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising for Codemasters in 2008,[14] and then co-founded the independent video game developer Warhorse Studios in 2011.[15] Ex-Altar Interactive lead artist and creative director Tomáš Kučerovský (Original War, UFO: Aftermath) became a successful comic book author.[16] Original War lead designer Vladimír Chvátil, who too had left back in 2005 during the breakup of the original Altar team following the cancellation of their ambitious RPG project Vision,[17] became an acclaimed board game designer who founded his own company Czech Games Edition, developing also mobile game versions.
