Modiphius Entertainment is the brainchild of gaming entrepreneur Chris Birch who founded the tabletop games publishing business in London with his wife Rita in 2013. Modiphius has grown quickly through a string of hugely successful Kickstarter crowdfunding projects raising over £2 million - first for it's own IP Achtung! Cthulhu and then licensed projects for ITV's Thunderbirds, Cabinet Entertainment's Conan the Barbarian, Siege of the Citadel and Mutant Chronicles and finally Corvus Belli's Infinity. The business has greatly expanded in to distribution and direct sales via licensing with Dreamwork's Kung Fu Panda, Star Trek with CBS, John Carter of Mars with the Edgar Rice Burroughs Estate, and Fallout with Bethesda.
Before Modiphius, Chris was founder and creative director of Joystick Junkies for 13 years, the fashion label that pioneered creating designer streetwear based on video game properties such as Atari and Space Invaders into the high street and boutique fashion market, and previously ran Cruise Control one of the UK's first online PR agencies after spending 10 years in the music business with EDM music festival Universe Tribal Gathering and Impact Talent as an international booking agent.
