South Quarter Independent Games is a U.S. board game and roleplaying game publisher in Fisher, Illinois, the United States. It is headed by designer Jonathan Harrison (BGG/RPGG).
SQI focuses on so-called roletaking games, in which narrative elements and gameplay mechanisms entwine in service of a larger player-defined narrative that is the joint goal of the game beyond any winning conditions.
As secondary focuses, SQI also publishes light fillers and historical wargames.
SQI is a one-person design/publication operation, and does not commercially release the games it publishes. Instead, in keeping with the company motto, “Free for the taking”, SQI makes rules and other game assets publicly available for noncommercial use as games are prototyped and released.
