Nook is a game design studio that experiments with new ideas and genres. We craft games and videogame-like phenomena to inspire industry.

Nook works within the academy, affording radical aspirations; Our games challenge what games are.

We believe…

Industry and academia work best with open dialogs.

Games are played and play must come first.

Lab studies confound the intrinsic nature of play.

Videogames must leave the lab.

This is only the beginning for games.



We are based in Melbourne, Australia, in a little space we call “The Nook”.
