David Gemmel and Stronghold

In 2009 we released the game Stronghold. It is an epic siege game about two forces in the dreadful clash! The inspiration for the game was an amazing fantasy novel Legend written by David Gemmel. Today, as we celebrate #BoardGamesThatTellStories week we are sharing with you a short story that was written for Stronghold! If you like fantasy and short stories, here is a one for you!


We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
