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 imagery as well as tongue-in-cheek references to the latest fads.
Whilst all of our designers have been conjuring game designs for decades, we only went legit in 2008 when we started the development of our first card game release - Viewpoint. This was quickly followed up by its expansion - Viewpoint Reflections.
We are very proud that both of these games were shortlisted for the Boardgames Australia Game of the Year Award. We are even more proud that our fans have had a major influence on the design of our games. We play-test the bejesus out of our games and the feedback we receive is what allows us to make such engaging and replayable games. Yes, we are biased but check out these testimonials.
“I would highly recommend Viewpoint as an excellent game...” - Keith Done, independent game designer and former LXG President
“FREAKING AWESOME!” - Alex Fleig, 2009-10 Viewpoint World Championship Runner-Up
“Outstanding card game. The more you play, the more fun you will get.” - Barry Wonson, member of UoW Guild Gaming Society
“I'm a huge fan of Viewpoint” - Liam Fraser, owner of Overdrive Gaming
“Great fun. Quick, lightweight, social, addictive. ” - BGG user
“Love the game.” - Shawn Stamatakis, 3rd place in 2009-10 Viewpoint Player of the Year
93 Made Games and our play-testers have been extremely busy over the past few years with the development of our next two releases - Monster Town and Superstars Rugby League - which are bigger and bolder than anything we've done before.
Whilst we self-funded our first two games, we are crowd-funding Monster Town and Superstars Rugby League via Kickstarter. Doing this allows us to provide an even greater gaming experience directly to gamers, whilst still being able to support local games stores, including through in-store events forming part of our Kickstarter promotional tours.
Even though we'll be busy with getting Monster Town and Superstars Rugby League out to the gaming public, we're continuing to design and develop our future releases. Stay tuned to 93 Made Games for details on our next lot of games, including those which are set in apocalyptic wastelands, gladiatorial arenas and cyberspace of the future.
If you’re after a copy of our games, you can buy copies of Viewpoint and Viewpoint Reflections via our webshop. However, if you can’t wait for the mailman to show up with your shiny autographed copies, you can always see if your local game store stocks our games and run down there instead.
Because we want to reach as wide an audience as possible, 93 Made Games distributes globally. As a minimum, you will find our games in UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, USA, Canada and New Zealand. We also distribute for other Australian independent game designers and publishers, such as for Blue Room Games, who produced NinjitZoo!
If you’re interested in stocking our games or having 93 Made Games distribute your independent tabletop game then drop us an email so we can answer all of your pertinent questions. Also, feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions you might have on 93 Made Games or any of our released or developmental games.
