As part of our 'Showcase Series', we are highlighting games companies large and small with a few quick questions to discover more about their conception, evolution, inspirations and aspirations. From the largest multi-national companies to indie games makers and even individual new-comers, we're happy to shine a light on a variety of views of the gaming industry and experiences for those at all points on the gaming ladder!
Today - ... Little Acorn Games and their entry to this years IGGY awards, Funny Fairies...
'Hi, I'm Jen, creator of Funny Fairies and founder of Little Acorn Games! As a young family, we simply love board games and it is through this love of games that I had that 'lightbulb moment' for Funny Fairies. Our little play-testers loved it from the start, so I founded Little Acorn Games in late 2019 and ran a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to get Funny Fairies out into the world for more families to enjoy! Since then, we were thrilled to win the Silver Medal for Board Games in the Independent Toy Awards 2020.
As mentioned, our children are my inspiration for my games. We have hours upon hours of family and children's board games under our belt, so I know what game mechanics they find the most fun and incorporate these into my own games. You will also always find bright and engaging illustrations that tell their own story in our games too - just like a beautifully illustrated children's book captures a child's attention and imagination, I want our games to have a similar effect.
I have mentioned 'games' a lot yet we only have one on the market so far...but not for long!
Our next pirate-themed game is due for release later this year, and I have many more character-based games designed waiting in the wings to roll out over the next few years. Watch this space!'
