Here is a database of filipino game designers – and it is ever-growing! So, make sure to check back here for regular updates. 

 

Teresa Maria E. Mison aka Sword Prince 

 

“Hi, I’m Maria and I enjoy the cross of participatory art, equitable play and collective narrative in TTRPG & LARP. All of which are political and catalysts for personal and collective change. It looks harmless, that’s the point. Help make chaotic-righteous-hopeful spaces by supporting my Patreon!”

“momatoes is a proud creator of a number of games for exciting adventure, introspective discovery, and memorable melancholy.”

Find momatoes’ games on momatoes.com/games and momatoes.itch.io

 

Paolo Jose Cruz aka Shibboleth

“I mostly design smol games (mini-RPGs, one-shots) that combine big power fantasies (fixing the climate emergency, guillotining the 1%, radically inclusive alt histories) with niche motifs (90s cartoons, Lovecraftian cosmic horror, pulp adventure) in self-contained formats (1-sheet pamphlets, half-letter zines).”

Find Shibboleth’s games at http://paolojcruz.itch.io

 

Jamila R. Nedjadi of Sword Queen Games

“Jammi explores themes of memory, emotion, intimacy, and relationships. Often with a queer lens, exploring Filipino myths and folklore and finding their place in sci-fi or fantastical settings.”
