And the keyword is: Review!

What a difference! Most of our games are children’s games and while adults love to buy them as a present and children love to play them, most people won’t sit down and write a review about them. For a family game people do! Really nice to see everybody enjoying the game!   A couple of […]

Childhood memories…

Do you still remember from childhood – back drawing? Children love drawing on people’s backs! Our game Rückenmaler with 12 coloured finger-tracing cards offers the perfect tools for this. Released today at Toy Fair Nürnberg! An experience game for old and young using actions that develop sensory perception and spatial intelligence in a quiet atmosphere. […]

Fun is the Keyword

Put away your smartphones and game tablets, and gather round the table with family or friends for a game of Keyword! Our newest release is launched today at the Toy Fair in Nürnberg.

Hurray! Today we signed (all three of us!) a worldwide license for two of our games and now it’s official! If everything proceeds according to plan the games will be published before the end of the year, so then we will be able to tell you more!

Building prototypes

Hard at work: Building several prototypes to send to game publishers. They need to stand up to a couple of months of testing by children, so we make them sturdy and durable!

Making money
