SKYBOUND ENTERTAINMENT PARTNERS WITH DRUID CITY GAMES FOR NEW TABLETOP GAME
The Grimm Forest Will Launch after a Successful Kickstarter Campaign
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 20, 2017) – Skybound Entertainment, the multi-platform entertainment company started by Robert Kirkman and David Alpert and centered around creators working in film and television, games, comics, and more, has partnered with Druid City Games to create the fable-based tabletop game The Grimm Forest. The partnership is a result of the game’s highly successful Kickstarter campaign, where publisher James Hudson set an initial goal of $35,000 and has now raised over $405,000 for the game.
“We’re excited to welcome The Grimm Forest to the Skybound Games family.” said Skybound Entertainment Senior Vice President of Business Development, Shawn Kirkham. “Tim Eisner’s (designer) original take on well-known stories is an ideal experience for the fable-tales fandom, as well as fans of Skybound’s brand of creative storytelling.”
The Grimm Forest is the latest IP to join notable properties such as The Walking Dead, Invincible, and Outcast. Previous tabletop games out of Skybound include the popular card games Superfight and Red Flags.
“To say that I am excited to work with the team at Skybound, would be a massive understatement. I couldn’t imagine a better partner to help bring the world of The Grimm Forest to life,” said publisher James Hudson. “It is a dream to think about the areas the IP could go. Tim Eisner hit a grand slam with this design and I could not be happier with the support we received in our Kickstarter campaign. Our backers were so passionate about the project, and had so many great ideas that we were able to fit into the game.”
The Grimm Forest is expected to arrive in stores in late 2017.
