We’ve been coming to MCM London for 3 years, now, and we always try to run a panel about creativity, as well as talking with anyone who wants to get into writing, comics or games. We believe that working to help other people achieve their creative dreams is one of the greatest responsibilities of the companies in these industries.
We’ve got a huge amount of experience across our team: from writing novels to creating comics, from game design to sound and artwork. We use these skills to create our own games and to help others create the game or comic they had always dreamed of!
We’ll be at MCM with a huge number of things, and we’ll be more than happy to share any or all of them with you!
You can find all of this and much more at Stand 722:
Champion of Earth – Our latest card game
In Champion of Earth, the players work together to defeat an alien invasion! It gets worse, though: the aliens have raised the dead and called forth creatures from the shadows to boost their forces. You play as one of 6 Champions of Earth in this light-hearted and fast-playing card game!
We hope you’ll join us in defending the Earth at MCM!
Era: The Consortium – A Sci-Fi game with 500 years of playable history
In Era: The Consortium, you can explore a massive universe and play at any time during the 500-year history. This allows you to play any sub-genre of Sci-Fi you want: colonisation of the first planet, exploration of new solar systems, first contact with aliens, all-out war with forces determined to destroy the Consortium or as part of a Resistance movement trying to overthrow an evil government!
The critically acclaimed Era: The Consortium “Last Stand of Stiletto Unit” session is going to be running as a demo throughout the weekend, so come along if you love Sci-Fi! Have a chance to save 14 billion lives inset at the climax of the game’s 500 year history!
We’ve been running this game for a long time, and loads of people have had a great time playing!
We’ve recently run a successful Kickstarter which enabled us to add 8 new books to the Era: The Consortium universe and we’ll be bringing them with us. Gain Psionic powers, play as a secret agent, enter the virtual worlds within computer systems and play as a brand new alien race – the choice is yours!
Era: Survival – Survive a world where Infected zombies are everywhere!
The fan favourite Era: Survival puts players into Gaia, a world where Humanity is dying out – in 100 years, there may not be anything left. No-one knows what caused the cataclysm and, honestly, no-one really cares any more. All that matters now is staying alive: faced with the Infected Mutants and Shamblers as well as the 14 factions of humanity convinced that they have the best way of surviving this post-apocalyptic world.
Will you survive? Find out in our Era: Survival Session “In Her Name”, which we’ll be running throughout the weekend!
If you’re interested in joining in, we’ve got a Kickstarter for Era: Survival running during the convention, so feel free to drop by and grab one of our flyers or talk to us about it!
Era: Hitman – Become a super-powered assassin!
Era: Hitman places you in control of an assassin with superhuman abilities. Avoid guards to reach your target in this game, inspired by Assassin’s Creed and Hitman!
We’ll be running demos of this for the first time at this convention, so don’t miss out this chance to try our latest game!
Era: Lyres – Adventuring? That sounds dangerous…
In Era: Lyres, you enter a fantasy world… but not as adventurers! Adventuring is dangerous, dirty, and doesn’t even usually reward you all that well! Instead, you are going to tell stories to the good folk of Yarnolth and convince them you have been on amazing adventures and have saved them! In return, they will reward you with gold and adoration!
Find out whether you have what it takes to be an adventurer in Era: Lyres, and don’t forget to bring your friends! We’ll be running sessions of it for anyone who wants throughout the weekend!
Era: The Empowered – Be a superhero!
Who hasn’t wanted to be a superhero at some point? In Era: The Empowered, you can create and play with your own powers to fight the evil villains who plague your city. Or… perhaps you’ll join them?
We’ll be running demo sessions of Era: The Empowered for anyone who wishes to play! Just come to the stand and ask to play!
Visit the Isle of Silence in this game, where you must work as a team despite being unable to speak to each other. If you fail to overcome the Challenges placed around the Isle, you will never earn your name as a warrior and return.
Can you overcome the Challenges of the Isle? Find out with us – we’ll be running demo sessions of Era: Silence throughout the weekend!

Comics – Sci-Fi to Superheroes!
Shades of Vengeance also creates comics, and we are bringing several of them to MCM! With two Science Fiction comics (in the Era: The Consortium universe) and two superhero comics (in the Era: The Empowered universe), we’re starting to move onward with our comic production!
We hope that you’ll visit our stand and check out what we have to offer!
Ever dream of becoming a writer or game creator?
Ed and Johnathan are running two panels about how to be creative and how to keep that creativity going through the hard parts of projects.
With over 20 years of experience in freelance writing and creating, we think we can give you a few tips! Join us in Lower Platinum on Friday!
We’re pleased and proud to be visiting MCM Comicon once again! We hope you’ll join us!
Shades of Vengeance will be exhibiting at Stand 722, near the S5 entrance, for all 3 days!
