In addition to creating our own games, Handiwork Games provides full-spectrum production services for other publishers.

With a team led by industry-veteran Jon Hodgson, whether it’s consultation on social media, illustration services, or creating a manuscript to a brief, editing, proofing, illustration, and layout, we can provide a range of services from consultancy to print-ready file creation.

Our services are perfect for established companies that need an experienced, proven, and capable team to expand their operations without the fuss of hiring new staff, or for new companies looking for help with producing their crowd-funded game.

We can deliver an extremely high quality end product, and work with you throughout its creation to ensure you are entirely satisfied. With an extensive web of established working connections across multiple disciplines, alongside a very large address book, we can work to the high standards you require for your game product.

We also have a section all about our crowdfunding-specific services here.

Case Study: Scarred Lands Creature Collection

Handiwork Games were commissioned by Onyx Path Publishing to create and run a Kickstarter for their Scarred Lands Creature Collection, and then to create the book itself.

The Scarred Lands Creature Collection Kickstarter was a great success, with 1,284 backers pledging $63,130 to the project.

The book was printed and delivered by Onyx Path and looks beautiful. We’re very proud of what we delivered to our client, and their customers.

You can learn more about the campaign here.

Throughout the campaign we drove engagement and excitement with a series of previews and votes. We leveraged our ability to deliver high quality design and visuals, along with engaging video material and social media content.

Here’s a look at one of our previews – Encounter Packs:

Case Study: Ralph Horsley

Renowned fantasy artist Ralph Horsley approached us to put together a monograph title which would document his life’s work in illustration.

This was an ambitious project which we were delighted to take on.

In addition to laying out the book, we planned and executed a highly successful kickstarter campaign for the book with Ralph, and assisted with printing and bringing the book into the UK, as well as sourcing a partner for Ralph to fulfil the campaign.

The resulting book is extremely intricate, as befits Ralph’s incredibly detailed and rich illustration style, and is quite unlike like anything else we’ve seen or ever created.

Case Study: The DM Lair

The DM Lair are one of our regular studio clients, and we’ve been delighted to layout several entire books for Luke and his team.

We supply layout, and illustration services, providing some of the art, covers and graphic design for various hugely successful titles from The DM Lair.

Case Study: EN Publishing

We’ve been honoured to provide a number of services to EN Publishing for a number of their highly successful Kickstarter campaigns.

We worked with Russ to design the Level Up 5e logo.

We also provided animation services for their Kickstarter videos.

We have sourced voice over talent for EN Publishing – something we can offer to all our studio clients. We’re big believers in the power of talented, professional, human voice actors.

Case Study: Paul Mitchener: Out of the Ashes

Paul Mitchener, author of Liminal, Age of Arthur and numerous other fine works in the roleplaying game sphere commissioned us to bring his “Out of the Ashes” RPG to life.

We provided all art, and laid out the core book, QuickStart, providing both bookmarked, hyperlinked consumer PDF files and print files. We have recently completed the bestiary for the game.
