We are developers of atWar, a Risk-like strategy game. We spent 3 years creating the game in our spare time and then 2 more years re-creating it in HTML5 after Microsoft and Google killed Silverlight, the original platform. Ask us anything!
Some time ago we set out to make a multiplayer browser game inspired by Risk and Civilization. We had no prior game-making experience and it was as much a hobby as it was a serious project. Still, after 3 years we released it and even managed to get some people to play it. Things were going steadily uphill, with some 700+ people in game at peak times, when dark clouds appeared above the Silverlight (Microsoft's answer to Flash) platform we were using. Not willing to go down with that ship, we started working on the HTML5 version of the game. Two years later our efforts were validated by Google dropping Silverlight support in Chrome and even Microsoft abandoning it completely in Edge. We managed to finish the new version just in time and have now switched to it a couple of days ago.
In the last 5 years we both moved constantly, with 5 different countries between us, but always being connected through our project. There are still only the two of us working on atWar, with no backing from any sponsors or game companies. But we do have a highly dedicated player base (some of them have been with us for over 5 years!), who helped us to gradually polish the game and to translate it into 26 languages.
We both love Reddit and would be happy to contribute whatever we can, so ask us anything!
EDIT: An old disgruntled "fan" has been DDoS'ing us the whole day while we've been wondering if it's a Reddit hug :(
