How everything started
Acheron was founded in 2015 as a publisher of speculative fiction books (Acheron Books) to which the role-playing game division (Acheron Games) was later added in 2018.
In just a few years, we have managed to offer a catalog including some of the best Italian writers in the Fantasy and Science fiction genres, joined by several international guest stars.
Growing into an international player
In 2019 the role-playing game “Brancalonia – The Spaghetti Fantasy Rpg” was launched on Kickstarter raised one hundred and ninety thousand euros, becoming our first major international success and winning four Ennie Awards (Italian record) at the 2021 GenCon in Indianapolis: Best Writing, Best Setting, Product of the Year, and Best Electronic Book.
In 2021 the game “Inferno – Dante’s Guide to Hell” was launched, raising over four hundred thousand euros and becoming the most funded Italian role-playing game in the world.
