Summer Interns and Summer Camps!

Here at Cubicle 7 we’re always on the lookout for new voices and the next generation of TTRPG developers. Traditionally we have done this by casting a wide net and hiring freelance writers, designers, and artists, both to work with us in our Irish studio and remotely from around the world. (If you would like to work with Cubicle 7, our job box is open! Feel free to apply here.)

This year we are also trialling a brand new intern program! We have brought on three Interns for a 12 week paid summer internship: Isabelle Baldie (illustrator), Vincent Burke (writer), and Diana Grigorescu (graphic designer). Over the 12 weeks our three interns have the opportunity to work with leading industry professionals and contribute to some of the biggest intellectual properties in the TTRPG sphere, including our in-house games such as Victoriana and the newly announced Uncharted Journeys.

In addition, our interns have been working hard together as a team to put together their very own submission for DriveThru RPG’s first-ever game design jam, Pocket Quest. The theme this year was ‘Summer Camp’ and after an intense period of development, our interns have created Camp Sapphire Springs! You can pick up your own copy here.

Camp Sapphire Springs

It’s summertime at Camp Sapphire Springs, with friends new and old, archery, boat races, camping and forest adventures aplenty. Sure, that weird old man screamed at you about Fishmen and Ghosts, but he was clearly crazy. The power might have gone out once it got dark too, but I’m sure that’ll get fixed soon too. Come to think of it, it’s been over an hour or two since your friend went outside to check what that scraping noise was. Maybe you should go out and check if he’s okay? You’re not afraid of the dark, are you?

Welcome to Camp Sapphire Springs, a tongue-in-cheek horror themed tabletop role playing game, designed for DriveThru RPG: Pocket Quest 2022, which aims to emulate the B-movie slasher flicks of the 90s. Take control of a class of clueless teenagers (inexplicably played by actors in their late 20s) as they are whittled down one-by-one by the gruesome attacks of a hideous monster! Get ready to embrace the tropes that come with the genre — deny the monster’s existence, run off into the forest alone, split up to look for clues, and gasp with glee as your happy campers die in spectacular fashion! Only one question remains, will you survive to see the credits roll?
