Epic pirate art I made for Back O’ Beyond, the board game
Back o’ Beyond, an upcoming pirate game from Fabled Games gave me the opportunity to get my pirate hat and eye-patch on. I have been commissioned to create some pirate art scenes, characters and game pieces for the project. This, I call ‘Broadside!’, and I’m really pleased with how much energy and excitement I got into the piece!
Who are Fabled Games?
I love working with these guys. A husband and wife team, plus a couple more folks with an incredible amount of collective tabletop industry experience. Make sure to follow their Facebook page for more updates on the games forthcoming release!
From the designer duo of Darkest Dungeon – The Board Game, the smash Kickstarter hit adaptation of the critically acclaimed video game by Red Hook Studios, comes Back O’ Beyond: Tales of Blood and Salt.
Nick Niotis started off as a games master and playtester for several companies, and since 2016 he has been working as a full time in-house developer and designer for various publishers. Other titles he has worked on include Solomon Kane, Reichbusters: Project Vril and Super Fantasy Brawl. His greatest pirate trait is probably his beard, which although not as mighty as Blackbeard’s, manages to give him a pirate-worthy look.
Argyris Poungouras has been designing board games with a more professional approach since 2015. Having won several top 3 places in local board game design contests, he has been working as an in-house developer and designer for the past 3 years. His other major title as a project lead is Super Fantasy Brawl. His greatest pirate trait is his ability to hold his bottle – which disappointingly is just water and not rum, but has to suffice.
