We at Evil Overlord Games have been working hard to assemble a brilliant selection of Evil Swag for your enjoyment! To that end, we are proud to introduce our new Threadless Artist Shop!

Guru Dan, from the Church of Eternal Life
We all want to live forever, don’t we?

Through the shop, you can order fine art prints of Duncan Eagleson’s fantastic concept art for Susurrus: Season of Tides. Or, get T-shirts with our logo, the Susurrus logo, or a reproduction of Guru Dan’s shirt from the Church of Eternal Life. (Patchouli sold separately.)

Grab a mug of your favorite hot beverage and cozy up with Cody, or any of the companions or elders from the game. Sport the Evil Logo on your phone, journal, or water bottle. Or let your fellow beach-goers know that you’re evil with an Evil Overlord beach towel. (Yes, really.)

As we build out the shop, we’ll be adding more products, so you can get your favorite character portraits on a T-shirt, or get a print of That One Piece of Art that you love from the game.

Meanwhile, check it out and have a click around. We think you’ll find something you like!

Evil Overlords and Susurrus at Arisia!

Friends, fans, countrypeople. Lend us your ears. (We promise to give them back. Probably.) Next weekend, January 12-14, 2018, your Evil Overlords and Susurrus will be at Arisia, New England’s largest science fiction and fantasy convention!

We will have two main presences at the con, and we hope you’ll stop by and visit both!

First, Evil Overlords will be at the Indie*Expo, an expansion of last year’s Indie Game Expo to include the Artists and Authors Alley along with game creators! We’ll be there to demo the game, give out some convention-only swag, and say hi.

Second, our art director Duncan Eagleson will be showing his work for Susurrus at the Arisia Art Show. Gawk, get prints, and meet the man behind our spectacular art team at Arisia’s most anticipated yearly offering!

We hope to see you there, at the Boston Westin Waterfront Hotel, from Friday, January 12 to Sunday, January 14! Tickets here!

This Black Friday, support your local creators on Patreon!

We know, lovelies. We know that the retail giants call to you, their tendrils waving sinuously, their guttural howls nigh-impossible to ignore. We know they cry to you with their bells tolling the year’s end, their slick, capitalist voices enveloping you in cinnamon-scented ichor and commercial lust.

We know, darlings.

But this Black Friday, perhaps a better way to spend your dollars would be to support those creators – like ourselves, coincidentally – that make the art you want to be a part of. Perhaps you – yes YOU – wish to become a part of that writhing mass of teeming souls – uh, that is, the discerning and self-selecting group of independent persons – who directly help us make our game continue to happen.

As the holiday shopping season grinds lurchingly to life, we ask you to consider becoming a Patron at our Patreon page

Also, don’t you want to do what Adric asks you to?

We have been working hard on improving Susurrus: Season of Tides and bringing it to its full potential. We’ve revised the UI, and will continue to tweak it as time goes on. We’ve added new premium content, by award-winning horror writer Michael Marano.

But to keep making this game – while still letting it be free to play – we need the help of people like you, people who love strange things, who appreciate literary games, who want their interactive experiences to be rich and full, like the fine Syrah offered in that screenshot…

So please, consider heading over there and joining the other wonderful folks who have already chosen to support us on a monthly basis. We will be thrilled to have you join the collective.  Patronage starts at just $1 a month. And, if you support us at higher levels, you might even get to see yourself in the game.

Haven’t you always wanted that…to be part of someone else’s game…

We’ve been accepted to IndieCade!

Splendid, gentle, and otherwise Victorianly-addressed readers: we are thrilled to announce that our game, Susurrus: Season of Tides, has been accepted as a Festival Selection in this year’s IndieCade!

IndieCade has been called the Sundance of indie games, and this October 6-8, it will celebrate its 10th year in California. The entry process was many pages long and set a very high bar just to attempt to get in, but ultimately, our scrappy little text adventure was chosen from over 1,000 entrants to appear on the show floor in Little Tokyo, in downtown Los Angeles. We’ll be among around 100 other games of all types – tabletop, digital, field games, you name it – where attendees will be able to try things out to their hearts’ content.

We’re incredibly honored to be included in the company of things like Ladykiller in a Bind, Dream Daddy, Anamorphine and Bury Me, My Love. We’re psyched to be taking this show on the road again, this time alllll the way across the country. (We’re Evil Overlords; we gotta expand our territory, right?)

More to come as we figure out where exactly we’ll be, who of us will be there, and overall what the heck is going on, but for now, we will simply offer a resounding “yay!”

Oh, and also: check out our game! They seemed to like it.


Susurrus: Season of Tides Early Edition is HERE!

Play now at!

What the heck is Early Edition?

Some of you are probably wondering exactly what Early Edition means. Well, as we hurtled rapidly toward our launch deadline of Gen Con 50, we realized that we still had a lot of story to tell, and not enough time to tell it in. So we wanted to make sure we got a finished game to you, and to the attendees of Gen Con, and to the world, that you can sink your narrative-loving teeth into.

But we also want you to know that much more story will be coming over the next three months, and by late fall, we’ll be well on our way to releasing the close of the first season arc.

Did we mention there are season arcs? There are season arcs. We promise: this whole thing is going somewhere. Somewhere weird and exciting.

But for now, play this week and check out the Gen Con quest! It is super-cool, and will disappear August 21!!

Watch the preview trailer below:

Get the Golden Dragon Minion, Through Gen Con Week Only – But Keep It Thereafter!

For Gen Con’s 50th anniversary, their art features a beautiful Golden Dragon. And that Dragon lives in our game, too…and will live on in the companions of those of you who buy it, this week only!

The Golden Dragon is a bringer of dreams. It lives in your home, an incorporeal presence, and tells you beautiful stories. For each story it tells you, your abilities will be enhanced for a time.

Remember: you can get it this week only, but you get to keep it forever!

Susurrus: Season of Tides is finally here! Play it for free at
