Are you an independent designer and have self-published your own game? Do you want help getting your game into stores in Australia and abroad? If you answered yes to both questions then 93 Made Games can help you. We know how hard it is getting a newly produced independent game onto the shelves of game retailers. Australian independent designers simply don't have the money, time or clout to compete on the level of international triple-A publishers who push their games into stores across our wide brown land. We've spent many years building up relationships with stockists throughout Australia and beyond and, along with releasing more of our own games, are also distributing for other independent designers/publishers. If this is something that is of interest to you then read on to find about the benefits of our distribution services or email 93 Made Games for more information.
Benefits of 93 Made Games independent distribution include:
So if you have a game that you’ve designed and published and would like help distributing it in Australia and beyond, then email us a brief explanation of your game and we will let you know if it’s suitable for distribution by 93 Made Games.
93 Made Games is an independent Australian tabletop game design and publishing company. Because our designers are big fans of the 80's and 90's and broader pop culture you will notice that a lot our games contain retro themes and stylised imagery as well as tongue-in-cheek references to the latest fads.
Gamers will have their first chance to get their hands on the premiere edition Monster Town at this year's Toy and Game Expo in Sydney, Australia on 5-6 July. 93 Made Games will also be showcasing its other games - Viewpoint and Viewpoint Reflections - as well as NinjitZoo, which is the first game from Indie designers Blue Room Games. These games will be exclusively available to the Toy and Game Expo attendees for special expo-only discount prices. Along with Mega Games and Natural 20 Games and Hobbies, the expo will also be the only locations where gamers will be able to purchase Monster Town prior to its official release in September 2014.
As per usual, 93 Made Games will be giving away plenty of merchandise to people who show up at our booth and purchase our games. And back by popular demand, 93 Made Games chocolates will be available - while stocks last - to anyone who comes by our booth to say hello.
We will be demonstrating all of our released games as would be expected but will also be demonstrating the latest prototype of Superstars Rugby League to those diehard league enthusiasts. Attendees will also get to throw rotten tomatoes at us during our 30 minute stint on the Spotlight Stage so please feel free to raid the vegie bin and hurl some produce our way or at least come by to say hello and play our games.
Last but by no means least, we want to meet with as many other independent Australian game designers and publishers as possible. The expo is a great place for doing this so if you have a game that you have designed and/or released then we want to know your story. Come by our booth or drop us an email so we can see how we can help build the Australian games industry together. 93 Made Games might even be able to assist in distributing your games throughout Australia and beyond.
The Toy and Game Expo is Australia's only public expo with the latest in toys and board games. Experience the fun in this family interactive heaven for ages from 4 through to adults based on a principle of See, Play, Own. Come along and SEE passionate high end users demonstrating their projects. PLAY with it yourself, and if it tickles your fancy take the opportunity to OWN it by visiting a retail booth.
After successfully reaching our funding goal, we are now able to give gamers a sneak peek at the production samples of Monster Town. Due to feedback received during the Kickstarter campaign, the game was changed from being split across four deck boxes (one for each gang) to one box containing the full game. A lot of the artwork has also been redone and looks wonderful when compared with the washed out images of the prototypes. Production will be completed by 5 June and the game will be in select stores and in the possession of our Kickstarter backers by mid-July.
As well as receiving copies of the game, certain Monster Town backers will receive limited edition merchandise, such as Monster Town playmats, the Art of Monster Town book, artprints and so on. All backers have been listed in the credits in the Monster Town Comprehensive Rules but we'd like to give special mention to the following backers and supporters of Monster Town:
