I am Joey Schouten, a board game designer and developer based in the Netherlands. My career in board games officially started in 2018, where I became half of Inkwell Games, an indie publisher that specialised in roll-and-write games.

As the developer side of Inkwell Games, I was responsible for getting games from initial design or concept to print. That meant I ended up assuming many roles, from designer, to developer, to consultant, to graphic designer, to illustrator, to copywriter, the list of hats I’ve worn goes on.

After the unfortunate early closing of Inkwell Games in 2021, I am now available to do that same work, but freelance! Even though I specialise in roll-and-write games, I enjoy and am able to work on all sorts of board games.
