SINGAPORE — September 23rd, 2021 — CMON Limited is pleased to announce the acquisition of Two Little Mice, the tabletop RPG studio founded by Riccardo ‘Rico’ Sirignano and Simone Formicola, and later strengthened by the addition of illustrator Daniela Giubellini. The award-winning label will serve as the publisher of CMON's growing lines of RPG and story-focused gaming products.
The deal also includes the acquisition of all games and intellectual properties developed by Two Little Mice, including the ENNIE-winning Broken Compass line of games, and the Household roleplaying game. CMON and Two Little Mice will continue the development and support of both titles, expanding their original scope and bringing them to a wider audience.
Rico, Simone and Daniela join CMON's roleplaying games and narrative board games division, headed by designers Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi who spearheaded the creation of the Zombicide: Chronicles roleplaying game, the design of the Trudvang Legends board game, and are busy developing several other top-secret narrative-oriented projects.
“I am very proud to welcome Two Little Mice to CMON, as I personally sponsored their addition to the team. Their dedication to their projects and the quality of their output make them stand out in a gaming scene that is filled with talent. Their addition will allow us to be even more ambitious with our current and future plans, as we expand our RPG and story-based product lines" said Francesco Nepitello, Senior Game Designer with CMON, and head of the roleplaying games development team.
The acquisition of Two Little Mice allows CMON to strengthen its position as a developer and publisher of story-driven games and other content, based on original intellectual properties and licensed franchises. “We are thrilled to join CMON and work with CMON, Francesco Nepitello, and his team on the development of new projects as well as their current slate.
