The Nomnivore Games team has written about the struggles of many Heroes—inspiring, brave champions who beat the odds and achieve greatness
Today, we’re pleased to share a happy chapter from the story of our greatest Hero: Dyson.
If you haven’t met him yet, Dyson is the Nomnivore Games mascot and the constant canine companion of our founder, CEO, and lead designer, Derek. Dyson is the goodest of boys, and the team were heartbroken in May 2019, Dyson was diagnosed with heartworm and given a treatment that presented a long, precarious, and arduous path to recovery.
Fortunately, Dyson was not only a brave and tenacious little champion, but he was supported by the greatest party any adventurer could hope for: the EMBERWIND community.
EMBERWIND fans helped us fund much of Dyson’s months-long treatment and was patient as we reduced our convention presence to provide his care.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that Dyson is finished his treatment and has been given a clean bill of health.
“The Goodest Boy” features a new original lore story about Dyson, plus some gorgeous artwork of Nom’s favourite dare-devil do-gooder doggie, along with new playable content: the fearsome Hearteater Foe Card.
The DLC is available for “Pay What You Can,” but for the first 35 people to donate $30 or more, we’ll mail you a limited-edition Dyson pin designed by Belli-Buttons.
50% of the proceeds will go to the RTRC dog rescue, who do excellent work finding happy homes for Dyson’s fellow terriers.
Thanks again to everyone who helped Dyson make his long adventure back to good health. We couldn’t be more grateful to have you in our party!
