We are all cousins & brothers who have gamed together for 30+ years, enjoying all genres of board games, RPGs, and tabletop games.
Most of us starting our gaming life playing Dungeons & Dragons at what we called “The farm”, which was a farm in the middle of rural Yorkshire, UK.
Now we are all grown up and spread around the country with our own families we play online in a group we affectionately call “The digital farm”.

The digital farm
After a 6 year campaign of Dungeons & Dragons 5e we needed a short break from all the sorcery and combat and decided to try our hand at some new games. Whilst searching for our new weekly digital farm night game we would suggest ideas of games that we should look for. As most of these searches came up blank, as there was nothing close to what we were looking to play, we all of a sudden had a list of games that were not on the market or available to play.
Cue bright idea!
Why don’t we make these games for us to play! And with that in December 2020 Alex and Paul, the brothers of the team, started researching what will become our first tabletop role-playing game “Haunted: Beyond the veil”.
The more we researched the idea of creating a virtual and physical game the more we learnt about the game industry and after many weeks of painstaking brainstorming we created our own game development company ‘Wrenegade Studios”.
We deliberated over many names, not wanting to sound too orientated to one genre rather than another. As we have plans for games that span all genres.
The reason behind the Wren part of the name:
Alex and Paul have a soft spot for the tiny Wren bird as it was their late fathers favourite animal and also the logo for his woodworking business that he ran with his brother.
Dan’s firstborn is called Wren who he affectionately calls “Wrenegade”!
So after many weeks of searching the answer was there in front of us.
As we mentioned above we have 30+ years of experience playing and creating games, now we would like to create something that others can enjoy as well.
