Games publisher moves to MediaCityUK Prolific North

Manchester-based tabletop game publisher Steamforged Games is moving to a new space in MediaCityUK.

The company has produced some of the biggest board game adaptations for brands such as DARK SOULS™, Horizon: Zero Dawn™ and Resident Evil™, as well as original games.

Founded by table enthusiasts Mat Hart and Rich Loxam, it now employs over 50 people full time.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of MediaCity and to add to the ecosphere of culture here,” said Rich Loxam, co-founder and CEO of Steamforged Games.

“This new office will be our hub to support the continued growth of the business. With staff coming from all over the country, and even the world, we needed a place that reflected our background – it’s MediaCity. We have an exciting year of new releases and projects to come, and all of us at Steamforged are excited to see what the future holds.

Stephen Wild, Managing Director of MediaCity, added:

“Steamforged is a really exciting and rapidly growing company. We’re excited to have MediaCity play a part in its future journey and give the team the platform to collaborate and leverage opportunities here as demand for immersive content grows.” .
