Pronoia designs, curates and publishes artistic expressions of ideal worlds,

mostly in the form of games.


When we imagined visiting the moon, it became a reality. What else can we imagine? Our vision is that our future can be closer to an utopia, if enough of us collectively dream of it.


Our mission is to make it easy for anyone, including ourselves, to imagine and experience utopias, by creating, curating and publishing artistic expressions that inspire this kind of thinking. We design and craft our own utopias and also publish and promote inspiring works that fit our vision.


We work with artists all over the world, favoring custom collaborations over classical company structures in an attempt to design a fairer distribution of profits. Our portfolio includes the marriage negiation board game Zestrea and the optimistic strategy game Heart.Papers. Border. We also run relaxingames, a Steam Curator page that recommends relaxing games/ relax in games. We have bold plans, so stay tuned for more!

We have so many ideas and dreams that we want to develop! We mostly brainstorm games, because that's what we are good at, and focus on the brilliant ideas of our current teams. We also scout for utopias where our help would make an impact.


Have you played, read, watched or experienced an utopia you wish to tell us about? Reach out to us! Do you have an idea of a perfect world, expressed in video or board games? We occasionally publish projects, but only if they are a perfect fit with our vision.
