Cubicle 7 – Boxninja Announce Partnership

By on 25 June 2009

Cubicle 7 Entertainment is pleased to announce that we have signed an agreement with Boxninja to publish their award winning science fiction 3:16 Carnage Amongst The Stars Roleplaying Game and the much anticipated fantasy follow-up, Carnage Amongst The Tribes.

3:16 has been a best seller in the Indie Press market since its initial debut at GenCon in 2008, attracting a lot of attention and praise. Its innovative game mechanics and design have been firm favourites at many conventions and with reviewers.

“Gregor is one of the hottest designers on the Indie scene today and 3:16 is one of the scene’s hottest games,” Angus Abranson of Cubicle 7 said, “To bring 3:16 to a wider audience is a great privilege and to be able to publish Carnage Amongst the Tribes is the added icing to an already exciting partnership.”

“I’m thrilled to be co-operating with Cubicle 7. These are very exciting times to be a games designer in the UK. Angus and Dominic have a bold plan and I’m glad that 3:16 Carnage Amongst The Stars is part of it. I’m also really looking forward to the release of the fantasy version Carnage Amongst The Tribes later in the year too.” said Gregor Hutton.

3:16 – Carnage Amongst The Stars will be available in stores worldwide in October 2009 whilst Carnage Amongst The Tribes will be making its debut in November.

About Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd
Founded in 2006 Cubicle 7 Entertainment was set up by Angus Abranson and Dominic McDowall-Thomas, two gaming entrepreneurs who wanted to create a games publisher fostering some truly iconic brands. Since then the company has published role playing games from a growing list of properties including Victoriana, SLA Industries, Starblazer Adventures (based on DC Thomson’s 80’s Starblazer comic series) and 7th Circle’s Chinese fantasy Qin. In June 2009 Cubicle 7 announced it had joined the Rebellion Group.
Victoriana is a fabulous fusion of Victorian adventure and fantasy myth, SLA Industries is a gritty futuristic urban horror fuelled by classic British punk imagery, whilst Starblazer Adventure is set firmly in the heart of classic 80’s space opera where gigantic fleets prowl the starlanes and devilish scientists operate enormous engines of destruction. The English translation of French publisher 7th Circle’s Qin propels players in to the epic fantasies and tragic events of ancient Chinese legend.
