Sanguine Games announces MADCAP: Table-Top Cartoon Roleplaying

Madcap Title Card 31-May-2017

Sanguine Productions is proud to announce MADCAP: Screwball Cartoon Role-Play. Based on the popular Apocalypse World engine, this game of laughs, lumps, and lunacy is designed from the ground up to be a hilarious experience unlike any other. In a cartoon world of ridiculousness, it’s not about winning — it’s about failing forward. From the classic of Bugs, Daffy, Tom and Jerry… to the revival of Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, and Freakazoid … and even onto the post-modern takes of Spongebob, Adventure Time, and Regular Show… our game reminds you and yours what it was like to get together and laugh at yourselves. (And trust us — you’re really funny to laugh at!) We’ve assembled a dream team of cartoon historians, fantastic artists, and our usual gang of idiots… and we need your help to light this candle.

MADCAP is now available for crowd-funding options. For a limited time, you can get exclusive artwork from animation professionals — your own cartoon character, immortalized in a role-playing game, the highest form of entertainment media! With your support, we can take this act on the road: new platforms, new stores, new artists, new novelty! Click here to spread the MADCAP lunacy.

Sanguine Games announces FARFLUNG – Sci-Fi Role-Play After Dark

Cover for Farflung 17-Feb-2017

Sanguine Productions is proud to announce FARFLUNG: Role-Play at the Limits of your Tomorrow. Based on the popular Apocalypse World engine, this high-concept science fiction game explores the possibilities of characters far, far more powerful than your typical role-playing game. From immortals beyond that transcend time, up to alien destroyers of entire worlds, and right down to the mostly-harmless Earthlings clearly in over their heads, you may immerse yourself in the experience of post-scarcity, transhuman space. But if anything is possible, then what is interesting? We have such sights to show you.

FARFLUNG is now available for crowd-funding options, and we invite you to participate in more ways than ever before. Early-access copies are available for immediate review. (Yes, pledge right now and immediately receive a working copy of the game.) And with your support, we can take this experiment in interactive fiction to new heights, such as new platforms, retail release, story-telling tools and more. Click here to share and enjoy Farflung.

MYRIAD DOOM, the conclusion to the Myriad Novels trilogy, now available

Myriad Doom coverBack in 2013, we were finally able to realize our dream to bring you a science-fiction game unlike any other. And with the help of pledges from people like you, we were able to make the Myriad Song role-playing game a reality. We were able to assemble a unique team of writers and artists, from the glory days of New Wave sci-fi to the modern era.

When Matt Howarth proposed the idea of writing more stories set among the Ten-Thousand Worlds, we were eager to press onward and ever on. With your help, we were able to publish Myriad Quest, our first graphic novel, which showed more mysteries of the strange universe, We followed up with Myriad Threat, which ended on a cliff-hanger where our heroes were more lost than ever. And now…

Now is where the past ends, and the future begins.
MYRIAD DOOM is now available

~That’s right. There’s no crowd-funding, no pledge drive. The book is available for immediate sale, right now. The book that you helped make, available for a single click.

  • The exciting conclusion reveals the true purpose behind the Syndic’s hoard
  • We learn the fates of Rhys and Naril, as they struggle against inter-planetary organzations larger than any one might control…
  • And a cavalcade of guest stars, as all cameo characters that appeared in a previous book have a return appearance in the pages of Myriad Doom.

For a limited time, printed copies of Myriad Doom will be on sale for 20% off. You can order from by tapping this link.

If you still need to get copies of the earlier volumes, too, bundles of Myriad Quest, Threat, and Doom are available in both electronic and print form.

Myriad SongAre you new to the mysteries of the Ten-Thousand Worlds? Discover the unlimited adventure with the MYRIAD BOXED SET, which includes the Song starter game, the Aliens, expansion, and all three graphic novels. Available in both electronic and print form.

It’s been your support that transformed these books from theory into reality. Thank you for believing in our dreams of fire and star-shine.
