When the comic market somewhat deflated in the mid-1990s, Naifeh started working in video game design. After the success of 'Gloomcookie', he published 'Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things' and the subsequent mini-series 'Courtney Crumrin and the Coven of Mystics' through Oni Press. He worked with Tristan Cane on the mini-series 'How Loathsome', which was published by NBM. Other titles he has worked on are 'The Machine', 'The Thing From Another World', 'The Shadow of the Torturer', ' and 'Star Wars'. He has also drawn for the roleplaying game 'Magic: The Gathering'.
