Video Game Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Shutting Down

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

While not officially closing until next Spring, the label will not be publishing any new strategy guides for the remainder of this year.

Are you sad to see Prima Games go? DK says that it is "now in conversation with all colleagues in Roseville, Indianapolis and NY who have been impacted by this announcement", with the Roseville office set to close as early as mid-November. Some of those working in the company's Indianapolis office "will stay until March 2019 to publish the remaining program".

Commenting on the news, Dorling Kindersley explained the decision was an "extremely difficult" one to make.

The news comes via Publisher's Lunch, who report that DK games blames a "significant decline in the video game guide sector" for the closure. But, no doubt, a financial necessity given the sheer volume of free strategy guides available on the internet today.

The duo began by releasing a quintet of guides: Nintendo Games Secrets, Sega Genesis Games Secrets, Turbografx Games Secrets, Game Boy Games Secrets and The Official Lucasfilm Games Air Combat Strategies Book.

Prima Games will close down fully by Spring 2019.

Thanks to the rise of sites like GameFAQs - and major gaming publications like IGN commissioning their own online guides, which bring in monstrous amounts of traffic - print strategy guides have struggled for years now.
