Asmodee brings Escape the Dark Castle to North America

The distribution deal includes the core game and all three Adventure Packs released so far, bringing ‘the game of atmospheric adventure’ to US stores for the first time.

 “We’re delighted to have picked up the rights to Escape the Dark Castle for North America,” said Asmodee’s Bryan Bornmeuller. “ The game caught our eye from the beginning and has gone on to develop a cult-like following in Europe. With the extended range now available and more still to come, we’re sure it will soon take its rightful place in the US market too.”

Thomas Pike, Managing Director and Game Designer at Themeborne had this to say, “As Escape the Dark Castle goes from strength to strength, we’re very happy to announce our partnership with Asmodee North America. The US market has always been hugely important to us, and we feel Asmodee is the perfect partner to help us bring our unique brand of atmospheric adventure to stores and gamers right across America.”

The game will be available to play and purchase at Gen Con 2019 at the Asmodee booth.
