Our Philosophy

 

At Nomnivore Games Inc. (NOM), we want to break the mould of traditional tabletop gaming by marrying the rich history of the genre with fresh, modern advances from other specialties. Our studio is based in Ontario, Canada, and features an international team of all-star enthusiasts that hail from a variety of backgrounds—including theatre, graphics design, film, comics, psychotherapy, and statistics—that taken altogether, provides us the skills and breadth to push the industry forward.

 

It’s in our company DNA to challenge tropes and try to raise the level of discourse in tabletop design, while treading carefully and respectfully around sensitive topics to ensure that the gaming table remains an inclusive space. 

 

 However, we know that from time to time, we’re going to fall short of the mark we set for ourselves–and short of the expectations the tabletop community has for us. (We can’t have ambitious successes without running the risk of ambitious failures!) We’re asking in advance for your patience when we get it wrong, and for your help having productive conversations about how to get it right. We're committed to taking the time to learn from each game we release and from the community that gathers around our gaming table. 

 

Back in 2019, we released our very first game, EMBERWIND. It was and continues to be our love letter to TTRPGs, and with it, we’ve crafted some of the most epic and impossible fantasy settings we could dream up. Now, we're developing a second line of tabletop games that prioritise fun, accessible experiences for younger members of the family to be introduced the rich, wide, and imaginative world of gaming. Grab a seat, get some snacks, and join us and our cute and loveable Nomnisaurs for some family-friendly fun!
