About Steamforged Games
From small beginnings in the corner of a hobby gaming store in Manchester, UK, Steamforged Games has gone on to create tabletop adaptations of some of the biggest video games around.
The company’s history of adaptations began with the wildly successful Dark Souls™ Board Game. Steamforged took the game to Kickstarter back in 2016, where it raised £3.7million followed by significant success at retail and is still one of the best-selling board games out there.
Since then, Steamforged’s catalogue has grown to include original tabletop roleplaying lines like Animal Adventures and Epic Encounters — which Forbes called the “Blue Apron [of] Dungeons & Dragons” — and popular board game versions of triple-A video games such as Monster Hunter: World, Resident Evil™ 1, 2, and 3, Horizon Zero Dawn™, and more, all well-received as authentic experiences true to the brand DNA.
Now the UK’s leading developer and publisher of licensed tabletop games, Steamforged is led by a love of the craft, a collective pride in what they create, and a mission to deliver compelling tabletop experiences that capture the emotions and inspire the imaginations of players around the world.
