FableSmith illustrates

Drawing people into a game has many factors. The biggest of which are the first impression, theme and art.
FableSmith aims to welcome as many of people as possible to the table by making colorful, cartoony art that complements an interesting theme.
In my opinion game art should be clear, funny, engaging and accessible.

Games, games, games!

Sitting down to a boardgame with other humans, the interaction between everybody at the table is of the highest value.

It is because of that philosophy that FableSmith aims to make games that are

 – Welcoming

 – Easy to teach

 – Highly interactive
