Ten years ago this month Cubicle 7 went from an ‘evening and weekend’ business to a full-time company. Gaining the Doctor Who license meant that we could secure investment, and Rebellion stepped in to provide the funds to grow the company. Handing in my notice at my day job was a bit scary, but the chance to get Cubicle 7 off the ground properly was too exciting to resist.
Looking back, we’ve achieved a lot, made a lot of cool stuff and won many, many awards! The thing I am most proud of is that we have maintained our reputation for quality. I care deeply about the games we make – I’m a lifelong gamer so it really matters to me that my company makes great games. Like all companies, we’ve had our ups and downs over the years, but throughout it all we’ve maintained our focus on quality and making awesome games.
When I was thinking about what to do for this anniversary, the thing I kept coming back to was that I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years – to you! So, for the next 10 days we’ll be celebrating your support of a decade of Cubicle 7 with competitions, special offers and more.
It seemed appropriate to kick things off with one of our earliest games, Victoriana. Not only was Victoriana the first game we won an award for (Silver ENnie Award for best writing in 2010), but it was one that bridged the gap between starting working in earnest on Cubicle 7 and the company getting properly established. The first two Victoriana Line Developers, the esteemed Andrew Peregrine and highly-regarded Walt Ciechanowski have also been stalwart supporters and contributors to Cubicle 7 over the years, thanks for everything guys!
While Victoriana books have been out of print for a little while, you can check out the PDFs at 40% off over at DrivethruRPG.com.
We’ll be back tomorrow with day two of the celebration – be sure to check back each day to see what’s happening! Thanks again for your support, and here’s to the next ten years!
