Widget Monkey Games Website Launches
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments
David Janik-Jones (aka forum regular DaveyJJ), original founder of Widget Monkeys and partner in design studio 729design.com, has launched a new game development and publishing website. Widget Monkey Games will highlight and sell David's own shareware games, and be a new portal to distribute and promote games being developed by indie game designers and studios using the Unity game engine.
Games published by Widget Monkey Games will be available for both Mac and PC. The goal is to distribute fun and accessible games that feature innovative ideas and game play. To kick things off WMG will be distributing the latest version of Turret Wars, an action game from WMG's first publishing partner, Sector3.
Widget Monkey Games' own titles in development include The Illusionist (due late summer 2007) and SPQR (due winter 2007). The Illusionist is a single player and online card game for 2-4 players who play rival Victorian-era magicians/illusionists set in a dark and crowded London. The goal of the game is to become the City's most prominent performer by having the highest number of Prestige Points at the end of the game. Prestige Points are earned by creating/assembling astounding illusions and "performing" them at various classes of theatres in the city. Strategy, timing and elements of luck all play a role in your rise to prominence, as do the political machinations and jealousy of your peers.The online play will feature head-to-head competition against players from around the world, an online chat lobby, and a full online high score system to ensure your fame.Widget Monkey Games promises more game developers will be joining the site as partners in the coming weeks.
In addition, Widget Monkey Games will be distributing the highly anticipated full version of Banana Warehouse later this year, as well as developing a fun-to-play 18-hole golf (or soccer) game in the future. And maybe a wildly innovative 3D billiards game. Finally, Widget Monkey Games features a Showcase page that illustrates some of the best work being done by game developers in Unity, and a Partners page with links to Unity- and game-related websites.
