This is us

King Racoon Games was founded in 2016 by Felix Mertikat and Till Bröstl in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Since then, quite a few games have been created in the studio in the baroque old town by illustrator, game designer, comic artist and lecturer Felix Mertikat, and also exclusively illustrated by him for years. Since 2022, the studio is expanding its business field by entering the publishing business, and external illustrators, as well as Maxine Metzger, will also contribute to new products. As a studio, we create new, fresh worlds and stories, which we then publish in various media, first and foremost board games, of course. We work either alone or with partners. We love games with deep and complex mechanics, games that you can rediscover every time you play them, and that inspire you beyond the purely mechanical level.

As in real life, representation and plurality are important themes in board games for us. We represent humans and human-like beings in their colorful range, and no one has absolute interpretive authority over the others. In our games, we distinguish between different factions based on their individual strengths, rather than assigning them weaknesses.

These are our games

We love creating games with extensive story worlds and expanding them into comics, novels, and many other mediums. Several years of development and testing go into each game, and they are designed for an exciting gameplay experience.

Tsukuyumi – Full Moon Down

Tsukuyumi – Full Moon Down is a challenging, asymmetrical area control strategy game that avoids elements of luck and chance, thereby challenging the tactical skills of the players. Everything that happens happens because the players made a decision. If you win, it’s because your tactics were simply superior – but if you lose, there’s no roll of the dice to blame your defeat on. And there are pandas riding tigers.
