Playmore Games, the Helsinki-based company has reached their funding goal for the Dized application on Indiegogo. The campaign reached $50 000 in 14 days and is on it’s way of becoming one of the most funded apps in Indiegogo history.
Dized is an app for smart phones and tablets that removes the tedious rulebooks from board games and gets gamers playing right out of the box. These step-by-step visual and interactive tutorials are like a friend at the table who knows the rules inside out.
“Crowdfunding an app can be very challenging, and we're ecstatic that we reached our goal in such a short time. This success demonstrates that the board gaming community is ready for a big revolution. Dized can make everyone’s gaming night a whole lot better,” explains Jouni Jussila the CEO of the company.
At the same time the company announced Steve Jackson Games’ upcoming hit Munchkin the Collectible Card Game to be featured in the app.
"It's an honor to get to work on something like Munchkin. It's a household name for gamers after all,” Jussila explains.
Munchkin is one of the best known brands in board gaming and has sold millions of copies world wide. Collectible card games are a popular format, and both casual and competitive gamers are looking forward to new Munchkin title. Designed by renowned game creators Eric M. Lang and Kevin Wilson, with the classic humor of Munchkin, the game offers strategy, bluffing, and top-notch puns.
"We're thrilled to be working with Dized on our new Munchkin Collectible Card Game. Dized will walk all levels of players through this new game experience," says Andrew Hackard, the line editor for Steve Jackson Games.
Campaign still running
Dized Indiegogo campaign is still running and has over two weeks left with several stretch goals still to be unlocked. One of them is the giveaway that includes over 100 board games with a custom made board gaming table for one lucky winner.
“We did a massive giveaway at Gen Con in August where one lucky winner won almost 150 of the best board games in the world, and a dragon throne. It turned out to be so popular that we decided arrange a giveaway during our campaign as well,” Jussila concludes.
