We wanted to depict these heroes in an art style that you would expect to find in modern fantasy games or comic books, instead of the boring b&w photos or childish cartoon style that you normally see. We wanted it to be something different!

As avid gamers, we thought a tabletop card game would be a fun way to see this vision brought to life. So, we went to work. To get the whole story of how STEM: Epic Heroes came to be, check out this blog post.
