Carnevale


Carnevale Miniatures Game Up On Kickstarter

Carnevale is getting a rebirth over on Kickstarter. There's a campaign over there for a brand-new 2-player starter set (and we all know my thoughts on those) and a revamped rulebook. Whether you're a seasoned gondolier or are just making your way to the City of Canals, it's a good time to get in on the project.

From the campaign:

We've just uploaded the reviewed Doctors of the Ospedale rules. You can get them both in ENGLISH and in SPANISH. We'll probably have the Strigoi ready tomorrow and the Vatican Forces soon after that.

But don't let me digress from a remarkable fact. In the wise -non literal- words of Tim Curry: "In just seven days... this Kickstarter will be part of the history of games!"

If you know anyone who's been sitting on the fence, or if you are reading this and you are not a backer yet, this is the best moment to jump in! Together we can keep this ball rolling in speed for this next few days.

The Grand Carnevale

Vesper-On Games decided they wanted something a little bit different for their game, Carnevale. Not specifically fitting into the usual genres of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, or even Steampunk, they have decided to make a world that's rather unique to just them.

From the campaign:

This campaign will help us to fund the publication of the new Carnevale rulebook, both in English and in Spanish. We are running out of copies of our first rulebook, so we need to re-print it again. Also last year we tried to publish an expansion for it. We intend to cram all of that goodness together in one magnificent volume. Also we are taking the opportunity to review our award-winning game system and make it even more cinematic than before!

From the update:

After a long silent while, the time to break it has come and we have to place our cards on the table.

This very month is the second anniversary of the release of Carnevale: the miniature game and Vesper-on Games' endeavor. The first sixteen months of our journey, whilst difficult, proved that Carnevale was a solid, profitable and marketable property that managed to make way in the busy shelves of miniature games. Our vision of an original game setting, with the best freelance sculptors available and a solid game system did well and our brand managed to earn its presence in our industry on a international level on a short time.

Vesper-On cancels Fangs and Crosses Kickstarter campaign

Vesper-On has decided to cancel their Carnevale expansion Fangs and Crosses Kickstarter campaign.



From the post:

Dear backers,

It is a fact that the actual trend of this Kickstarter campaign is not taking us in the direction we expected to go. That is a really hard bullet to bite. We sure made a few mistakes at presenting this project to the world. Maybe we should have aimed straight to the £17,000 for the printed book, which at the end of the day is what we all really wanted to see. Maybe we could have done this in a different currency. Maybe the stretch goals... Maybe. But we didn't, and for whatever reason this is not working.
