Founded in 1985, R. Talsorian Games is respected worldwide for its intriguing world settings, award winning products, and impeccable graphic design. Beginning with Mekton, the first giant robot setting to be published in the U.S (and later translated into French, German, Italian, and Japanese) Talsorian soon followed up this success with the highly acclaimed Teenagers from Outer Space (Winner of the 1987 Gamer’s Choice Award as well as being voted one of Games Magazines top 100 Games).
RTG’s most famous product, Cyberpunk, lead the explosive entry of the dark future genre into roleplaying in 1987, and has continued to break new ground ever since. A richly textured world supported by a host of supplements, Cyberpunk has become the basis of an upcoming AAA video game from famed developers CD Projekt Red.
In 1994, R. Talsorian published the revolutionary Castle Falkenstein. Based in a mythical Victorian world where Magick and Jules Vernian science fiction live side by side, Falkenstein was the inspiration for translations into 6 languages as well as a novel series featuring such well known authors as John DeChancie and Nebula award winner George Alec Effinger. Highly regarded for it’s stunning illustration and graphic design as well as a compelling story and revolutionary game mechanic (that used cards rather than dice), Castle Falkenstein won the prestigious Origins Award in 1994; a year later, its North America sourcebook, Six Guns & Sorcery, won the Origins Award for Best Game Supplement.
After a hiatus, R. Talsorian Games has emerged in a new incarnation, specializing in bringing unique creative visions to multiple media formats with new games as well as new versions of our classics.
