Who is Catacolyte Games?

Catacolyte Games (kuh-TAK-o-light)  is an indie TTRPG design studio focused on immersive, mold-breaking design with intent to shake up D&D 5E. Ashton Baker founded Catacolyte Games in January 2023 after spending five years in the industry working for companies like Loresmyth and Kingdom Death. Our goal is to get what’s in your head onto the table so you can live out your every fantasy.

Why Trust Us?

Catacolyte Games has already produced Cult of the Blood Queen after crowdfunding almost $4,000 through Kickstarter and Backerkit. We take game design seriously, because we love what we do.

Play Isn’t Just for Fun

Catacolyte Games strives to be a healthy, innovative, and designer focused studio that puts art first. We condense mature, complex topics that can feel overwhelming into easily digestible forms you can explore in your own games. Play isn’t just  for fun. It’s an integral component of expression and self-exploration.

A Company for the Future

Game design demands a degree of passion that companies often exploit when it should be rewarded. Studios like us are nothing without our artists, writers, and designers. As Catacolyte grows, our creators will be built into the company’s reward structure so that they may reap what they sow.

Don't take our word. Here's some reviews by Backers on our previous project.

“WOW!! This is truely fantastic work team! I am so impressed that I will definitely be backing your future projects! Seriously well done! This is so cool!”
– Svend Peter Hoegh

I'm in love with the look and feel of this whole thing. I've backed a few kickstarters (read: a lot) and this is one of only two that I'm compelled to interact with and I'm very interested in seeing everything that comes out of this.
- Senior Chronicler Varaldar
