About

Kanka was born in 2017 out of the desire of a passionate RPG player wanting to build and manage a world with his players. After trying out a few available options at the time and concluding that none of them fit quite right, development on Kanka started in the fall of 2017.

Jay

Founder & Lead Developer

I created Kanka in October 2017 because there was no tool that easily allowed me to create a world with my friends and still allow me to control who could see or do what.

In early 2020 I took a leap of faith to work full time on Kanka thanks to the support of friends and the community.

Co-Founder & Business Manager

Jay and I have been friends for almost a decade, and it has been exciting to see him develop Kanka over the past couple years.

Since early 2020, I have been helping by taking care of the business side of things, and I hope that we can continue to offer a unique tool that is useful for world-builders and players everywhere!

Community Manager & Lead QA

I started using Kanka in early 2018 and was one of the first people to join the Discord. I promptly started making work for Jay by creating a whole list of possible features for the (then upcoming) calendars.

Nowdays I help out with the community on Discord and Reddit, and break new versions so you don't have to.
