We are the Agonizing, a small press dedicated to sponsoring and financing smaller game artisans, specially those of under-presented, marginalized sectors.
Our focus is on filling the holes left in fiction: continuing to release work for long-dead games, stories and content that a mainstream IP would not touch, platform transformative material. Our focus is transformative TTRPG content and offering a platform for its distribution and preservation.
No game is too small: if you made a small rule fix, or an addendum, or wrote a small story, we can give it a proper layout and through itch.io give it to the world. Did you write a story about a game world? We can give it some editing.
Our social mission is to provide a democratic work space, capable of rewarding everyone involved in the craftsmanship of games for their hard work: to all according to their sacrifice and effort (and ideally, needs). We advocate for equity, self-management, workplace democracy, sustainability and solidarity in the game industry.
Our group will take your work, see what you need to get it out there. You give us whatever you can, so that we can support our work and other projects. We pool our labour so yours is not forgotten.
