A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.



the one man band

Hi! I am Francesco; I’m a game designer and founder of a small indie publishing company. Tabula Games is a new experiment to go worldwide and also to explore the amazing wonders of Kickstarter. I believe it’s an extremely powerful tool in the right hands so the idea is to use my experience to help game designers bring to life the game of their dreams. I already deal with all the business and logistics, letting the designers to have the time and full creative freedom, to do what they’re passionate about. In conclusion, the best of both worlds!

Supporters and backers are the soul of a project and we feel they are an important part of our team.
The supporters also need to be actively involved in the creative process, weighing in on game design and creative decisions to help us shape the best game imaginable.
We know you’re able to offer input and bring ideas to the table that can make a huge difference, and we’re ready to listen to what you have to say!
