The digital adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg’s award-winning puzzle and economy-based board game
“Patchwork is a very cute game. It has a charming facade of quilty-buttony comfort that is really quite inviting and calming.”
– Andrew Fretz (TouchArcade)
Uwe Rosenberg’s Le Havre: The Inland Port Now Available on Steam
Patchwork and Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small enter Steam Greenlight
BERLIN — Aug. 29, 2016 — DIGIDICED is thrilled to announce the release of Le Havre: The Inland Port on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux at only $6.99 for a limited time. A faithful adaptation of the board game, the Steam version of Le Havre: The Inland Port retains the gritty strategy, resource management, and harbor-building mechanics players loved in the physical release.
DIGIDICED’s conversions of two other Uwe Rosenberg games — Patchwork and Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small — are now listed on Steam Greenlight, with the goal of arriving on Valve’s popular online store in the near future.
In Patchwork, players go head-to-head against quilters all over the world by laying down tiles of different shapes and creating a patchwork of sorts. As a patch is placed, each player moves a little closer to the end of the time-tracking board. Being “first mover” has its advantages, but racing to the end could result in a very rough quilt!
Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small is a competitive 1v1 ranch-themed board game. Players start by sending three workers to a nearby village market to acquire resources/livestock. Each of the 16 locations in the market serves a unique purpose — raising livestock, producing resources, or allowing players to purchase structures. Whether competing against one another or the CPU, players must use their wits to strategically place buildings and acquire (and manage) both resources and livestock. Whoever has the most animals after eight rounds wins!
“Releasing Le Havre: The Inland Port on Steam is a big step for DIGIDICED,” says Felix Dreyfus, CEO of DIGIDICED. “We hope Windows, Mac, and Linux users enjoy our adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg’s harbor management masterpiece. We’ll be on the lookout for feedback as well: We want to make all of our desktop ports — including Patchwork and Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small — worthy of the Steam community.”
Pricing & Availability
Le Havre: The Inland Port is now available on Steam for only $6.99 — 30% off the $9.99 retail price. The sale ends on September 5th.

Digidiced Brings Uwe Rosenberg’s Patchwork to Smartphones & Tablets
Now available on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices for only $2.99/€2.99
BERLIN — Feb. 24, 2016 — Digidiced’s mobile adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg’s award-winning board game Patchwork is now available on Google Play, the App Store, and for Windows 10 devices. Go head-to-head against quilters all over the world by laying down tiles and carefully stealing from the competition in this charming strategy game for two.
Previously known for its adaption of Uwe Rosenberg’s Le Havre: The Inland Port, Digidiced stays true to Patchwork’s original design — keeping the hand-stitched aesthetic and “patchwork” mechanics intact.
Patchwork’s key game mechanic is all about strategically laying down tiles. With each piece of fabric placed, players move closer to the end of the time-tracking board. Being the first one to move over a valuable single-square patch (i.e., stealing from the competition!) is a sound strategy, but it also carries a fair amount of risk: it turns out that racing to the end of the board will give players less time to build their own quilts! More so, carefully planning each stitch while avoiding holes is critical because each gap will cost players two whole points.
Patchwork for mobile offers three different game modes:
- Local: Play against the A.I. in three varying difficulties (Lula/Easy, Hoo/Medium, and Ute/Hard) or share your device with another local player using the Guest option.
- Casual: Join unranked online matches — a step up from local play but not as competitive.
- Ranked: Challenge players from all over the globe in ranked matches.
“Uwe Rosenberg’s Patchwork has been a hit in the board game community — especially with families and spouses,” Felix Dreyfus, CEO of Digidiced, said. “Likewise, Patchwork soon became a tabletop favorite of ours, so we jumped at the opportunity to faithfully adapt it to mobile devices. We think both new and current fans will be very pleased with the end result.”
