“Symbaroum is a dark fantasy set in a deep and dark forest chock full of ancient ruins and treasures. Its landscapes are haunted, its characters traumatized, and its monsters are pure, unbridled nightmare fuel. (-) Also the art by itself is enough to haunt your dreams”
~ Sara Elsam, Dicebreaker, 10 best fantasy RPGs that aren’t Dungeons & Dragons

“The game that has inspired me most this year.”
~ John Dodd, Tabletop Gaming magazine

“All in all, this is a stunning piece of work. It has all the sophistication of 13th Age, the mechanical beauty of Dungeon World, and the dark attractiveness of Warhammer Fantasy in a comprehensive and elegant game.”
~ Rodney Orpheus, Medium
