Reinis Pētersons is more used to illustrating books and creating art-house comics, and has even worked on several award-winning animated films. However, in recent years he has collaborated with Brain Games, becoming a prolific name in the world of board game illustration! Bringing his distinctive visual style to every project he’s involved in, Reinis prides himself on consistently improving his craft, and we’re delighted to have him on board for Iron Forest! When he isn’t working, Reinis enjoys 3D printing, soldering things, and making stuff. These passions came together during the last Covid lockdown where they resulted in him making a brand new DIY Arcade Cabinet, which he now uses to battle against his children across countless retro video games!

Brian Gomez is a collective pseudonym used by four game designers from Latvia - Edgars Zaķis, Reinis Butāns, Jānis Grunte and Egils Grasmanis. They’re most famous for creating ICECOOL, the acclaimed dexterity game that has picked up countless awards including the 2017 Kinderspiel des Jahres! And now, by developing the ICECOOL system further, they proudly present to you Iron Forest - the next generation of flicking games!
