Oni Press Expands Into Game Market

Oni Press has announced the launch of Oni Games, a new imprint dedicated to adapting the company's creator-owned titles for the tabletop game market. Previously, Oni has partnered with Renegade Game Studios to bring together Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Card Game as well as with Pinnacle Entertainment Group to adapt Cullen Bunn's The Sixth Gun for the Savage Worlds roleplaying game system; they have also had success with their recently launched Dead of Winter comic series based on the popular board game from Plaid Hat Games.

With this expanision into the game market, Oni has brought on game industry veteran Steve Ellis to manage the new imprint. Ellis is the co-designer of Dicey Goblins, Trains: Rising Sun, and Railways of the World: The Card Game. Ellis is also the founder of Porland game store Rainy Day Games.  "I look forward to working with many talented game designers and developers to bring some of the amazing Oni Press properties to life in new interactive ways," Ellis told ICV2 of the new initiative.

"As fans of the exciting developments and explosive growth in modern tabletop, we are excited to bring the same level of quality and execution in our creator-owned comics and graphic novels to the world of board games," said Oni Press’ VP of Creative/Business Development, Charlie Chu.

Details about upcomnig games from the new imprint have yet to be disclosed. For a list of top selling graphic novels from Oni Press, see below.
