Evil Overlord Games is definitely not a conspiracy of Boston area geeks, drawn together into dark magics from the gaming, live-action role-playing, engineering, theatrical, and literary worlds. We were founded in 2016 with a mission to bring the high-level writing and narrative depth of the LARP community into the story-driven video game world. Our goal is to provide emotional resonance, moral complexity, and meaningful player interaction in exciting and dynamic gameplay environments.
Using a novel game engine developed by our small team of sleepless MIT mathematicians, our games will take note of every choice a player makes along the path of the story, and use those choices to change and shape the game world. With writing from top players in the interactive fiction and live-action roleplaying realms, and art led by a veteran illustrator in the horror and fantasy corners of graphic novels, literature, film, and music, our games promise rich and immersive journeys through evolving, player-driven worlds.
As a company, Evil Overlord Games seeks to make the kind of mature, diverse, and compelling stories that are normally only available in tabletop RPGs or LARPs, available to you in your web browser.
