It's nearly the end of 2018 ... blimey!

Posted by Workhouse Games (Creator)

Well ... 2018 is drawing to a close and what a year it's been! You beautiful people funded a game and world that we have been working on for way too long! All production has finished and the pallets are now being collected from the warehouse and taken to the port!

The moment we have details about what boats, tracking etc - rest assured we shall let you know! 

From the absolute bottom of our hearts ... thank you all for this year! You really have made our dreams come true and we promise you that 2019 is going to be even better ... let's see what's coming up shall we ...


We're hoping at the end of January we'll be able to launch our first anthology of short stories ... Tales from the Hollow Earth, Volume One : The Awful Orphanage. Production and samples are already underway as you can see from the video below ...

It's going to be a rather lavish affair featuring faux leather binding, a full colour slipcover, gilt edging, a ribbon bookmark and should we reach certain amounts we'll also be offering a gatefold box, metal corner protectors and more! You can view the WIP Kickstarter page for it here.

Did we mention there's also going to be a limited edition sculpt included too ... it might be of a certain evil lady, and it's bloody good!

Whilst this is happening we'll continue to update here with information about your orders too so you won't miss out. Once we have individual tracking numbers we'll send you all e-mails one by one so you can keep a watch on your stuff!

In March, our friends at Chapter & Verse miniatures will be launching their Kickstarter for their H.P. Lovecraft miniature collection, which is a rather beautiful thing. Be, these sculpts are incredibly detailed! Here's a snapshot of the man himself ...

... then in October we're hoping that The Hollow Earth tabletop skirmish game will be ready to go. However, we're not pushing that one so hard as we want to make sure it's absolutely right before we show it off in it's entirety. So much so that we will be holding a few beta tests in various locations to gather your advice and opinions on the game itself.

But for now, here's a sneak peek just for you ... 

Phew ... so there we go! Thank you for giving us this opportunity, we're not going to let you down at all. You are all absolutely amazing, and remember if you ever want to ask a question just e-mail us at and you'll get a real response from a real human!
