Cubicle 7 Entertainment and John Wick are pleased to announce they have signed a publishing agreement. This partnership will see Cubicle 7 bring award-winning author and game designer John Wick’s games to a wider audience through distribution and retail stores.
“I’ve enjoyed John’s games ever since he designed 7th Sea and Legend of the Five Rings for Alderac Entertainment,” said Angus Abranson of Cubicle 7 “I carried on following him when he left the mainstream industry, set up his own company – Wicked Dead Brewing Company – and produced some fantastic games such as Cat and Thirty. It’s an honour to now be able to work alongside John and help bring some of his newer, and future, games to the wider audience they deserve.”
HOUSES OF THE BLOODED is the first book to be published through Cubicle 7: a game of Ambition, Lust and Revenge. Thousands of years ago, the ven ruled the world. They were a passionate people, obsessed with Romance and Revenge, opera and theater, and all the forbidden delights their decadent culture provided. In the end, that which made them beautiful was also the key to their own destruction. Houses of the Blooded is a game about tragic obsession. Set in the fantastic world of ven myth and legend, players take the roles of powerful characters bent on conquering their world, destroying their enemies and possessing all they desire.
“I’m very excited,” said John Wick. “My end goal has always been to get as many people playing my games as possible. My partnership with Cubicle 7 will help make that happen.”
Cubicle 7 has been announcing a bunch of partnerships and actions recently. This is great for everyone involved. Everyone, of course, wants another successful RPG company. Further, having met a lot of the Cubicle 7 crew at Gen Con 2008 (and scoring an interview with one of their authors), I have to say that they seem to be a really nice group of people. I’m hoping to hear lots more good things about all their successes.
