About Prima Games


Prima Games, an imprint of DK and a division of Penguin Random House Inc., is the world’s leading publisher of strategy content for PC and console video games. Prima Games understands what gamers—both casual and hardcore—want and need from strategy guides. Every guide features in-depth content, detailed screen captures, quick-reference tips, and professional strategy. Prima Games is also a leader in the digital strategy realm, offering interactive maps, streaming video, searchable online guides and apps, and a full website at primagames.com.

For 25 years, we’ve been helping gamers not just complete their games, but completely conquer them. Through these years we have evolved with the gaming world, from the very first print guides published for the NES, to our most recent online guides with interactive maps and streaming videos. In 2013, we joined forces with BradyGames (also owned by Pengin Random House LLC) to become the premiere provider of official, expert strategy content, with the largest catalog and the most games covered.
