Steamforged Games, leading UK tabletop games developer and publisher (Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, DARK SOULS: The Board Game , Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game , Bardsung , Epic Encounters , and more) announce acquisition of the Euthia IP and a partnership with Czech studio, Diea Games, to resurrect the Euthia board game crowdfunding campaign that was cancelled in May  this year after raising over half a million dollars in just two days.  Euthia, rated 8.8 on BoardGameGeek and currently out-of-print, is an open-world fantasy sandbox RPG board game that initially ran on Kickstarter in 2020 and was well-received by the public.

Navarre & Funimation Quarter Earnings

Navarre Corporation, the Minneapolis-based former parent company of the North American anime distributor Funimation, released its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2011 on Tuesday. This is the last time Navarre's financial results will mention Funimation, as Navarre sold Funimation on March 31 for $24 million to a group of investors that includes Gen Fukunaga, who is also Funimation's chief executive officer. The financial results cover the three months that ended on March 31.
As Navarre had announced in previous quarters this year, Funimation is listed as "discontinued operations" — a financial term for a segment of a company that has been separated from the rest of the company, or has been approved for separation.
Navarre reported in its press release that Funimation had a net loss before tax of $849,000, which included $2.1 million in non-cash impairment charges.
Navarre reported that discontinued operations showed a net loss of $536,000, compared to a net loss of $486,000 for the same segment in the same period in 2010. In the first quarter of 2011, the segment had an income of $895,000, in the second quarter, it had a net income of $1.68 million, and in the third quarter, it had a net income of $1.8 million.
Reid Porter, Interim Chief Executive Officer, commented in the report on its sale of Funimation, saying "We are pleased to have completed the sale of FUNimation during the fourth quarter. As we have previously stated, this Japanese anime business was not a strategic fit with the rest of our business. This sale allows us to focus on expanding our presence in new, revenue streams."
Navarre had also announced on Monday that Chairman of the Board Eric Paulson is stepping down in September, nearly 30 years after he founded company.
Navarre will hold its quarterly earnings conference call to discuss the report on Wednesday.
