“It’s all about designing something from an Australian perspective – with our unique culture and our jovial nature in mind,” according to 93 Made Games’ Sean Carroll.
Viewpoint provides perfect entertainment for Australian families on a tight budget. It’s a game to be enjoyed by the whole family – both parents and children.
93 Made Games’ main challenge in releasing Viewpoint has been getting Australian retailers to stock a product that was not produced by one of the larger US game publishers, such as Hasbro or Mattel. But by releasing Viewpoint at Australia’s premiere games and entertainment expo, Gen Con Australia, they have garnered great support from Australian retailers, including Good Games and Games World, which now stock Viewpoint.
“However, we’re totally confident the overseas audiences will also enjoy something that is designed from a unique and fun Australian perspective, so we are intending to distribute Viewpoint throughout the US, Europe and Japan,” according to Carroll.
And there’s more in the pipeline with 93 Made Games intending to release more games in 2010 including a Rugby League card game. To assist other up-and-coming Australian game designers 93 Made Games has also provided a forum for game designers to pitch their ideas.
“Australians have always been known for their ingenuity and inventiveness and these are exactly the skills that we’re after,” said Carroll.
Viewpoint sells for a RRP of $14.99 and can be purchased from your local game store or via the 93 Made Games website at www.93madegames.com.au.
