Late last year, the eCommerce player Flat River Group bought Greater Than Games. It looked like a roll-up with the group also buying Impressions, the company once associated with Free RPG Day.
Greater Than Games had also bought Cheapass Games.
Now, Board Game Geek reports that a previous merger is being undone. It’s a divorce. A dice-vorce?
The news site has shared a snippet from a press release that quotes Dice Hate Me Games President Chris Kirkman;
Our merger in 2015 was a bold experiment to unite the brands, hoping to maintain the health and prosperity of both. Over time, the size and scope of Greater Than Games changed, and many games that fit the original vision of the Dice Hate Me brand no longer seem to fit that scope. Our experiment may be at an end, but both companies can and will make great games, even if apart. I look forward to returning Dice Hate Me Games to its roots.”
There’s no such press release on the GTG site, but, alas, this is the way of game publishers.
The Dice Hate Me Games site says;
Dice Hate Me Games is back! And indie as ever. There are a lot of cool plans ahead, so stick around – you are loved.
It’s understood that Greater Than Games will keep the games Compounded, Bottom of the 9th and Legends of Sleepy Hollow. Dice Hate Me Games get their remaining stock, and Nevermore Games’ Dark Dealings, Spires and Fabled Nexus’ Fate of the Elder Gods.
