Target Games was formerly a Swedish publisher of role-playing games before their closing.
Target published much of their early material in the form of stapled books in G5 (169 by 239 mm) format in a box together with dice.
They released the role-playing games Drakar och Demoner (1982), Mutant (1984) (with the later versions Mutant (1989) Mutant RYMD (1992) and Mutant Chronicles), Kult (1991), Chock (1985, a translation of Chill), Sagan om Ringen (1986, a translation of Middle-earth Role Playing) and Stjärnornas Krig (1988, a translation of the WEG Star Wars RPG). Target Games also published Warzone, a miniature wargame.
They also released three generic sourcebooks, Grymkäfts fällor (1987) (translated from the classic game supplement Grimtooth's Traps), Stadsintermezzon (1988) and Skattkammaren (1988) as well as many adventures and sourcebooks for their games. Until the mid 1990s Target Games published their Swedish roleplaying games under the brand name Äventyrsspel (meaning "adventure games"). Target Games was reconstructed in 1999 and ceased publication of all of its inventory and the intellectual property rights were transferred to the daughter company Paradox Entertainment, which later became an independent company. Some of the titles have since been licensed to new game companies.
Beside role-playing games, the company had its own magazine named Sinkadus, published translated gamebooks (the Lone Wolf series among others) as well as translated fantasy novels (beginning with a Conan the Barbarian book). Target Games also published a Drakar och Demoner computer game in 1999.
Drakar & DemonerEdit
The name Mutant was used for a series of unrelated science fiction themed role-playing games. The 1984 version was set in a post-apocalyptic world similar to the one in Gamma World. The 1989 version was a cyberpunk game while the later Mutant RYMD and Mutant Chronicles where science fantasy games with a setting similar to the one in WarZone. All versions used variants of the Basic Role-Playing for rules.
