About Planet Smasher Games

Planet Smasher Games is an independent tabletop games studio founded by Mike Hutchinson in 2015. We make unreasonably fun tabletop miniature games, including Gaslands (Osprey, 2017 & 2019), A Billion Suns (Osprey, 2021), Hobgoblin (Electi, 2023) and many more!

My Games

I have a habit of writing about myself in the third-person, but Planet Smasher Games is mostly just me (Mike) with help from good friends, like Glenn Ford, and my awesome communities.

I am constantly and obsessively write tabletop miniature games. Some are published through major publishers, and some, like Perilous Tales – Thrilling Solo Adventures are currently available direct from me, as Early Access titles.

My Ethos

I produce exceptionally good rules for tabletop miniature games. I seek to prioritise gameplay above everything, delivering surprising, fun and highly re-playable tabletop experiences.

I believe my games are great because I use modern product development techniques, iterate fast, hold nothing sacred, and test everything I do with large numbers of real players.
