Bytro Is Climate Neutral Certified!

Hamburg, Germany – 05 May 2021. Strategy gaming specialist Bytro is thrilled to announce it has partnered with Stillfront and South Pole to become Climate Neutral certified for both years 2019 and 2020.

As a thriving and growing company focused on connecting people through video games, Bytro has itself been committed to working on its own impacts for years. This has included ensuring renewable energy in nearly all its operations and offsetting its emissions related to business travel, paper, printing, games production, and operations. We are aware that our biggest footprint lies within our indirect emissions: the energy consumed by our players when playing their favorite games. That’s why we additionally compensated for every second of playtime to make our players climate-neutral as well, which ended up being by far the biggest share of our compensation.

After months of anticipation and work, today we are proud to say that Bytro, along with all the other companies that Stillfront represents, is not only a carbon-neutral company but it also offers carbon-neutral products. By supporting Bhadla Solar Power Project in India and the Isangi Forest Conservation Project in Congo, we have compensated for the carbon dioxide emissions made by the operation and the people using our products for the years 2019 and 2020.

“We are also excited to say that becoming a certified climate-neutral studio is only the beginning of our environmental strategy. As a company, we aim to be sustainable in all dimensions, and as individuals, we want to know that we are working towards a better future for our planet, and feel proud when we see companies commit to contributing the way we do. ”, Says Tobias Kringe, Managing Director & Founder.

This is an important step for us as all of our team members voted for “Sustainability” as one of our new company core values ​​in a workshop last year. Although being a business that is self-sufficient is part of it, it is important that we commit to this value in all its dimensions.

Sustainability is one of our six core values.

A better future for our planet does not stop with becoming environmentally friendly and climate-neutral, therefore we will continue to support different projects to drive a change in this world. In 2019 we teamed up with our friends at War Child to raise awareness and support children affected by conflict. We are committed to continue driving a change and promise to keep pushing ourselves and motivating our community to follow these steps.

Call Of War: Crossplattform-Krieg bricht am 20. März aus

Bytro veröffentlicht native mobile Apps zum beliebten Multiplattform-Strategiespiel

Hamburg, 15. März 2018 | Dass echte Innovationen im umkämpften Mobilegames-Markt noch möglich sind, beweist der Hamburger Spieleentwickler Bytro mit den Mobile-Apps zum erfolgreichen PC-Spiel Call of War, die am 20. März weltweit in elf Sprachen starten. Denn das im Zweiten Weltkrieg angesiedelte Strategiespiel ist das erste echte MMO Grand Strategy-Spiel, das für Smartphone und Tablet verfügbar ist.

Die Spieler übernehmen die militärische Führung der wichtigsten Kriegsnationen und tauchen gemeinsam mit bis zu 100 realen Gegnern in die aufreibendsten Schlachtszenarien des größten aller Kriege ein. Dabei gilt es, ganze Regionen zu erobern, Bündnisse zu schmieden, die eigene Wirtschaftsleistung auszubauen und die geheimen Waffensysteme des Zweiten Weltkrieges zu erforschen. Die Spieler entscheiden selbst, mit welcher Strategie sie ihre Ziele durchsetzen wollen – in intelligenten Allianzen oder mit rücksichtsloser Durchsetzung eigener Interessen, mit dem Einsatz hochentwickelter Waffensysteme oder in stumpfen, aber effektiven Materialschlachten. Das Spiel läuft in Echtzeit; Runden können Wochen dauern.

Das Besondere an Call Of War ist neben dem anspruchsvollen Gameplay in authentischem Setting der konsequente Crossplattform-Ansatz, erklärt Entwickler Bytro.

“Unsere Spieler, über alle Versionen hinweg bereits drei Millionen, haben echte Plattform-Freiheit und können mit einem einzigen Account ihr Spiel im Browser, auf Steam, im Mobile-Browser, in der Android- oder iOS-App fortsetzen. Darauf sind wir besonders stolz”, so Tobias Kringe, Geschäftsführer bei Bytro.

Dank HTML5-Technologie sind für die Nutzung im Browser keine Plug-ins nötig.

Neben der anspruchsvollen technischen Realisierung setzt Call Of War auf maximalen User-Komfort und abwechslungsreiche Gefechte in historisch korrekter Umsetzung. Die Spieler bewegen ihre Einheiten gleichzeitig in multiplen Durchgängen und können so unterschiedliche Strategien und Taktiken ausprobieren. Insbesondere Fans von Strategie-Brettspielen werden voll auf ihre Kosten kommen, so die Erwartung des Hamburger Spieleanbieters.

Über Bytro Labs
Bytro Labs GmbH ist ein gründergeführtes Unternehmen, das anspruchsvolle browserbasierte Onlinespiele sowie Mobile Games entwickelt und betreibt. Aktuell haben die Spiele von Bytro Labs 7 Millionen registrierte Spieler und sind in fünfzehn verschiedenen Sprachen verfügbar. Bytro Labs wurde 2009 von Felix Faber, Tobias Kringe und Christopher Lörken gegründet.
