THE COMPANY

Origame is a proudly Singapore-based board game publisher that aims to showcase the best of Asian culture and talent. Driven by a passion for great game mechanics and design, we aspire to create games that continuously improve as well as reflect our identity and tell our stories.

 

With partnerships all over Asia, Origame aims to build an Asian community of board game designers, social innovators, and artists to distil and redefine the concept of Asian-style board games.

 

We believe board games have the power to build relationships and communities, and hope that our games can have a cultural as well as social impact. Origame is also actively engaged in fostering the board game community and culture in Singapore and beyond. 

THE DESIGNER

Daryl Chow, PhD is a globally acclaimed and award-winning board game designer with extensive international experience and networks in the board game industry.

 

In 2018, he launched two successful Kickstarter campaigns, The Artemis Project, that reached over USD $120,000 in funding, and Overbooked, which has been licensed in many languages with tens of thousands of copies sold worldwide.

Daryl designs with the purpose of spreading happiness and culture, and though he designs for companies throughout Asia and the world, the games produced through Origame are the closest to his heart.
