Your Favourite Childhood Strategy Guide Company Prima Games Is Closing Down Shannon Grixti

It seems the present has finally caught up to the company, though, as publisher DK has announced that Prima Games will be shutting down.

Part of the DK publishing group, Prima Games has been releasing in-depth print guides for videogames since its birth in 1990. It was announced that the sales of these guides have fallen significantly.

Popular video game strategy guide publisher Prima Games is shutting down after 28 years.


The decision was announced by the Dorling Kindersley division of Penguin Random House, and all three of the Prima Games offices at Roseville, Indianapolis, and NY will close its doors, affecting all employees working there. While a selection of employees at the Indianapolis office will continue to publish content until March. Prima Games opted to aim for the collectors' market, with high-quality, hardcover books that often came packed in with extras and bonuses like art, controller skins, and more. However, the Roseville office will close much earlier than its counterparts in NY and Indianapolis; at some point in mid-November of this year. In these guides would be helpful tips and tricks on how to do everything there is in any given game.

To combat this, Prima Games made the decision to also begin publishing its guides online.

Pour one out for Prima Games.
