Description Edit | History

Play Attention Games, Inc. was founded by Matthew McFarland and Michelle Lyons-McFarland.
In 2013, it was renamed Growling Door Games, Inc. because the Play Attention Games name was already in use by somebody else.

From their website:
Growling Door Games is Matthew McFarland and Michelle Lyons-McFarland. We formed a game company in 2012 to facilitate the release of our first original roleplaying game, curse the darkness. In 2013, a copyright dispute forced us to change the company name, and we settled on Growling Door Games. If you meet one of us at a con, ask us to demonstrate why. It’s kind of funny.

The mission statement for Growling Door Games is, quite simply, to make games about subjects that we think are important, fun, or awesome. It’s nice if the games have some education potential or value — so far, they do — but that’s not something we’re prepared to promise for every release. The act of play has value for its own sake, and although we have our reasons for making any given game, that’s really the highest truth: we like games. Games are fun. They bring us together with friends and family and provide entertainment, shift in perspective, and good stories.


From February 16, 2018:

It is with great sadness that we announce that we are shutting down Growling Door Games, Inc. Matt will be addressing the specific reasons for the shutdown sometime soon.

We are not going to producing any further game products or books, nor are Michelle or Matt going to be freelancing for any game companies.
