Andrews McMeel Publishing Signs Exclusive Licensing Deal
to Distribute ZWEIHÄNDER RPG Content via Roll20
Kansas City, MO (May 21, 2020) —Andrews McMeel Publishing (AMP) has signed a licensing deal to distribute ZWEIHÄNDER RPG content via Roll20, effective May 21, 2020. Roll20’s Virtual Table Top (VTT) will be the exclusive virtual tabletop for all ZWEIHÄNDER and Powered by ZWEIHÄNDER d100 tabletop role-playing games.
In addition, AMP has released the ZWEIHÄNDER RPG Player’s Handbook in Roll20 Compendium format, playable here now. With ZWEIHÄNDER RPG, gamers are able to create grim characters, write perilous adventures, and build their own low fantasy & dark fantasy campaigns. The ZWEIHÄNDER RPG can be found on the Roll20 Marketplace here. AMP will also develop and support future ZWEIHÄNDER RPG supplements and a variety of yet-to-be published tabletop role-playing games on the Roll20 Marketplace.
“One of the key challenges modern audiences face is which virtual tabletop (VTT) to use when playing tabletop RPGs online,” said Daniel Fox, AMP’s Executive Creative Director, Games. “While other VTTs have their own unique advantages, the intuitiveness, flexibility, and user-friendly interface that Roll20 offers simply can’t be beat. The release of the ZWEIHÄNDER RPG Compendium is a perfect complement to the Roll20 Spotlight program. The future of VTT gameplay rests in Roll20’s capable hands, and I am excited for our partnership with them.”
“ZWEIHÄNDER is a great game that calls back to the classic tabletop RPG feel and crunch, while also having the design sense for a modern audience,” said Trivia Fox, Roll20 Licensing Director.
“We have watched continued growth of ZWEIHÄNDER on the Roll20 virtual tabletop and are honored to be the exclusive place to play ZWEIHÄNDER online. We look forward to continuing a partnership with both Daniel and Andrews McMeel as the ZWEIHÄNDER series grows and develops.”
