Vesuvius Media is an indie development company dedicated to providing high-quality games.
To do this, our development team interacts with our players, openly discussing their ideas and valuing their opinion. This enables us to develop relevant and engaging game content while creating a welcoming game environment and a loyal game community. Player input helps shape the future of its games!
Vesuvius Media Ltd. was incorporated in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 2014, but our international development team has been working together since 2010. Our combined skills and experience include game design, development, story-telling, music composition, graphics (2.5D with 3D models), public relations, marketing, crowdfunding, extreme mathematics, and more!
Konstantinos Manos (a.k.a. Kevorque)
Web Developer, Framework Designer and Game Designer
I became a programmer with the sole dream of creating computer games. It took me many years, working in the private sector and as a freelancer, on a wide variety projects, to acquire the necessary skills that are required for such a task. Finally, here we are, building our own indie game development company to produce original games, and make our dreams come true.

Storytelling, Game Design
I have been playing computer and tabletop games for a long time. A common, binding element among these games is the story, the backbone on which everything else lies. Myths and legends, sinister plots and heroic characters, all these, and more, shape alternate realities that constitute a significant, often memorable part of our childhood. A part of that, hopefully, remains alive even when we grow up and it is this hope that makes it so fascinating for me to create the worlds of Universe Online and Nocturion!

Community Management, Soundtracks, Video Editing
I have been working for the last 8 years as a Web Developer on various projects. Even though I do like coding, my real passion lies in music. I love my guitar, greatly enjoy playing my piano, adore pounding on my drums, and have a love hate relationship with my bass. So I had a great time composing the main and back tracks for Universe Online and Nocturion. On the other hand, I must admit that I am a bit of a forum troll :) and this is exactly what led to my taking on community management of our games.

Managing the message and keeping you informed
For almost six years now, my life has been turned upside-down. A world I never knew existed - a world of games, fantasy, and vast volumes of lore - is now my reality. As you may have guessed, six years ago I met my husband. His hobby is his passion, and now, he's managed to combine work with play...literally. As the dutiful wife (wink wink), my role is to keep things in line. I'll do my best to keep you interested and up-to-date. Let's go!
Anastasios Grigoriadis (a.k.a. Nocture)
Game Designer, Game Developer and Board game Product Manager
I have been working for the last 14 years as IT Engineer. Although I like my job, my passion was always PC and tabletop games. I have dedicated my spare time to organize gaming community in Athens since 1998. I never thought that my hobby someday would be my dream job. I develop and design board games since 2011. It is amazing, very creative and priceless to monitor step by step the transformation of an idea in to a game whose purpose is to give joy, happiness and endless hours of gaming to other people.
