Evil Overlord Games is an indie game studio focused on story-driven, massively multiplayer games that use player choice as the main game mechanic. We are essentially 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.
In a World…
The original four horsefolk of the Evil Overlord Games apocalypse came together in late 2016 to begin work on a game engine that would cause collective player actions to change the gameworld, and an interactive-fiction style set of branching storylines to play through.
…Where Your Life Is No Longer Your Own…
After securing initial funding from the Founders, we brought on an art director, a marketing person, and a second writer to fill out the team. In the rush leading up to our first release in August 2017, we swelled to 11 team members.
On August 17, 2017, we released the Early Edition of Susurrus: Season of Tides at the tabletop gaming extravaganza, Gen Con! For its 50th anniversary, we folded the Gen Con licensed characters into the game, along with a special quest all their own.
The game is live on the web and free to play! We are in Early Edition, and will release a lot of new content over the next few months, along with tweaks to our engine. We’re looking forward to showing you much more – and to the next Season…
