Founded in 2013 by longtime friends and collaborators, Greg Perkins and Jason Dickerson, Arkrite Press aims to produce high quality role-playing games and gaming related products.
HEAVY GEAR UNIVERSE, the company’s first licensed product line, represents the renewed development of the popular hard science fiction roleplaying game Heavy Gear, created by Dream Pod 9. Arkrite Press has signed a multi-year license deal with Dream Pod 9 to bring the Heavy Gear roleplaying game back to market with a new edition celebrating its 20th anniversary. Greg and Jason’s previous involvement in the production of Heavy Gear titles includes Operation Drop Bears Dive!, Perfect Storm, Forged in Fire, as well as the revival of Gear UP, Dream Pod 9’s online magazine.
In addition to the worlds of Heavy Gear, Arkrite Press is developing new RPG settings that will be unveiled as they mature.
