Here's a game we've not heard about for a little bit, but it's nice to see it coming back. TTCombat has a quartet of new Carnevale kits that you can order over in their webshop. I mean, one's got a bionic rhino and a bionic crocodile. I might pick these fellas up just because.

The folks at TTCombat have a new batch of Carnevale releases available to pre-order over in their webshop. It's 3 new sets of figures as well as some new terrain that you can use for your Venitian gaming pleasure. Grab your masquerade mask and flowing cape and hit the canals.

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.
This is never a story type that I like to post.
Unfortunately, it seems as though Vesper-On will be closing up shop. In an e-mail sent to other game companies, they announced that they are looking to sell off their various assets, including some spin-caster machines as well as their game lines.
Oh solooooo miiiii-ooooo!
I dooooon't know the woooooords!
Vesper-On has the next set of releases available for Carnevale. These are figures that were unlocked during their Kickstarter campaign to relaunch the game and it includes a land shark.
I want a land shark.
Vesper-On Games has a week left in their Carnevale Kickstarter campaign. They're closing in on 3x funded.



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.

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.

TGN guest reviewer, Sean Dooley, takes a look at much of the game's line and lets us know what he thinks on the subject.

TGN Reviews

So grab your accordion and your gondola tickets, it's time for another TGN Review. This time, it's Carnevale.
Vesper-On Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their new version of Carnevale. They're already 2x funded with still 26 days to go.



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!
Vesper-On has posted a big announcement about the status of the company and of Carnevale for the upcoming year.


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 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.
Pins of War recently sat down with the guys from Vesper-On Games and talked about the next expansion for Carnevale called Fangs and Crosses.

From the post:

Pins of War set down and talked with David from Vesper-On Games about their Skirmish Game Carnevale, their latest expansion Fangs and Crosses, and their Kickstarter campaign.

What's more, David shared an exclusive piece of concept art for a monstrous miniature that Vesper On is looking to fund!

From the announcement:

If this Syphilitic Noble doesn't give you the creeps, we don't know what would!

It also includes an alternate head that you can use to build the figure as a Noble or a Barnaboti.

Carnevale is getting some bite, thanks to the new February release from Vesper-On.

Hi from Vesper-on Games SL

We're half way through this campaign, and things are looking really great! Since we've killed two stretch goals in just a few days, we thought it would be good to announce the next Stretch Goal: the White Collar Thief (we send you a picture to have a look at the concept sketch).

We really hope we can get there!
