Freeverse Ships 3D Crazy Eights
6:00 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Freeverse Software has announced that they have begun shipping 3D Crazy Eights across North America. The company's latest game uses a 3D Card Games engine for realistic player perspective and supports Internet play via the GameSmith opponent matching service.

Here's more from the official press release:

Freeverse's Version of Crazy Eights supports many popular rule variants, so players can enjoy the game as they learned it, quickly and easily, with a few clicks. The game also supports two scoring methods, and even allows users to customize card point levels.

Finding an opponent is easy with Freeverse's GameSmith player matching service. Players connect to GameSmith using an in-game menu, and can browse from any number of games in progress or waiting for players, or chat with others and convince them to join their games. The game also supports a parental lockout feature for Internet play, so concerned parents can be sure their children are safe.

3D Crazy Eights also supports Freeverse's PicturePuppets technology, which allows for simple drag-and-drop creation of unique online avatars for network play. Users supply digital photos of their own faces, and PicturePuppets does the rest.

The retail version of 3D Crazy Eights carries a suggested retail price of US $24.95, and comes with a free bonus codebreaking game: Enigma. 3D Crazy Eights requires any Macintosh running Mac OS 8.6 or later, and runs natively on Mac OS X.
