Bytro was founded by Felix Faber, Tobias Kringe, and Christopher Lörken who met during their studies of Cognitive Science. Their vision was to create a game that would meet their own high standards. Within a short period of time, the real-time strategy game “Supremacy 1914” became a major success and was named “Browser Game of the Year” in its first year by the enthusiastic community.
The three founders are named “Founders of the Month” by the Ministry of Economy of the federal state Baden-Württemberg.
Bytro releases their first mobile game called “PanzerWars” which is published by Xyrality GmbH. The business simulation “Industry Tycoon” is also added to the portfolio.
