Molinarius Games Ltd

Molinarius Games are a UK tabletop publishing company with a passion for unique & fun games. We started as a small family business in 2020 before operating successful Kickstarter products such as Lakes Game and Ocean Pods.

This lead to Molinarius working alongside several Retail and Distribution companies who stock product in UK and EU locations.

In January 2024 the company grew and split into two divisions. Molinarius Blue produces small easy to learn, fast and fun family games like Shoal & Ocean Pods. Molinarius Black is developing larger Gamefound projects such as Time Troopers.

We work with a wide variety of indie game designers, developers, artists, graphic designers and 3D artists.

We are proud supporters of Ocean Generation charity who we have donated part of our Ocean Pods profits to and used to understand how we can make changes to our processes and components to positively impact the Ocean and climate change.
