Based in Belmont, Massachusetts, Evil Overlord Games is definitely not a conspiracy of Boston area geeks – drawn together into dark magic from the gaming, live-action role-playing, engineering, theatrical, and literary worlds. The studio was founded in 2016 by Edwin Karat, Rickland Powell, and two friends from the LARP universe: award-winning writer Victoria (Tory) Root as President & Lead Writer, and MIT Assassins Guild member Andrew Menard as Chief Architect. The mission of Evil Overlord Games is to provide emotional resonance, moral complexity, and meaningful player interaction in exciting and dynamic gameplay environments.
