Compose Dream Games Marketplace

edited November 2017 in News
The Compose Dream Games Marketplace has recently begun to bring on more games. If you are a Canadian game designer we'd love to add you to our growing list of publishers. Right now we are focussed on Canadian designers, and Canadian retailers. We sell both direct to consumers, and to stores; both PDFs and Print+PDF.

Our current focus is Canadian games and stores, but we may expand to other games in the future.

There are a few principles we want to hold to:

The best possible rate for Game Designers
Too many sellers of RPGs take far too high a cut. We take only 10% (after transaction fees). This means our designers get more funds to create more games. They get more of your support.

If you are a RPG designer/publisher please check our terms here and to contact us.

Solid Partners with FLGS
Friendly local game stores are the cornerstone of the RPG hobby. Anyone picking up a print copy of one of our games, from one of our retailers, is entitled to a complimentary PDF. Customers should feel empowered to support their FLGS.

We are also planning on launching a "ship to store" option to let customers that want to order from us direct pick up their order at their FLGS. This gives the customer a break on shipping, immediate access to a PDF and the FLGS gets credit to get more of our games. This feature isn't active yet, but we should have it active in the next couple of months.

If you are a retailer please check our terms here and to contact us.

A positive Network
We want to create a positive network between FLGS, game designers and gamers. This may include providing space for all of these people to talk, and facilitating "Designer Demo Days" at FLGS, and who knows what else.

It also means we'll do our best to reach out to everyone at conventions and other gatherings.

So who is part of the CDG Marketplace?
I'll do my best to keep this list up to date

    Buried Without Ceremony has joined the RPG Marketplace.

    Their first product with us The Quiet Year is up as a PDF, and we're looking forward to getting hard copies in the mail. A map based post-apocalytic story game, I've been wanting to try this since I first heard about it.

    I also hear work has begun on Monsterhearts 2nd edition.

    The above list of publishers above has been updated.
  • Lost Cause Games has joined the RPG Marketplace.

    Hope Inhumanity is already in it's second edition. It explores the horrible decisions that need to be made as you journey through a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
    Hope Inhumanity uses 110 custom cards, to explore this narrative.

    You can access the rules for Hope Inhumanity for free at

    Expiditious Retreat Press has joined the Marketplace. They are known for their Advance Adventures line, their 1 on 1 Adventures, and A Magical Medieval Society.
    Their products are listed here in the Marketplace, and you can find out more about their work at their blog Sorcery & Super Science!
  • I met with Fraser Simons of Samjoko Publishing at Breakout Con in Toronto last week. And had a pleasant discussion about his game The Veil, a cyberpunk roleplaying game that is powered by the apocalypse world engine.

    They have since joined the marketplace!
