Since its founding in 1998, TimeGate has excelled in redefining genre norms to deliver the best possible gaming experiences, as evidenced by the critical and commercial success of its real-time strategy series Kohan. Released in 2001, Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns received critical acclaim from numerous publications, including “RTS Game of the Year” by PC Gamer and Computer Games Magazine. Eight months later, the standalone expansion Kohan: Ahriman’s Gift was awarded “Strategy Game of the Year” from Computer Gaming World.
