Who created Autarki?

The game was developed by Simone Krüger and Martina Hillbrand as a study project at Kiel University, Germany. Our mission is to make environmental discussions fun again! Autarki is not only supposed to inform, but also to motivate its players to get active for more sustainability.

Are you interested in developing Autarki further? In addition to the original German version, we have published an English translation in July 2017. We would like to create more translations and expansions of the game in the future. Proposals for new cards are always welcome!
