From the official Facebook page:
Monolith is a French game publisher whose first project is a miniatures boardgame based on Robert E. Howard’s Conan universe. The game designer, Frederic Henry (Timeline, The Adventurers, The Builders, etc.) is also one of the company founders.
Monolith is born from Fred’s desire to develop immersive games both in their universe, their game mechanics and even their graphics. He teamed up with the Hascoët brothers, founders of Bombyx.
To get the necessary funding for the production (funds for development as well as drawings, sculptures and graphics are brought by the shareholders), choice was made to bring the project on Kickstarter.
