Beardshaker Games pulls its first accolade out of the beard!

- for immediate release –

HAMBURG – Mar. 22,  2013 — The newly-founded studio  Beardshaker Games from Hamburg presents “NonoCraft”, its first cross-platform title which will be released this year and will be available for Windows 8, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, Mac and Linux. Thanks to its well-executed concept, NonoCraft has been chosen as one of the "Game Connection Selected Projects“ and will be presented at the Game Connection America in San Francisco, which will run from March 25th till March 27th, 2013.

NonoCraft allows the player to re-enact different myths of creation in a new and fun way. By solving Nonogram puzzles, the ingenious Dr Pix and the completely crazy Mr. Pox create, picture by picture, their own individual version of biblical, Chinese or Celtic creation myths. Even the truth about evolution may finally be revealed, together with the newest scientific findings about rocket-powered polar bears.

The browser-based predecessors, NonoSparks: Genesis and NonoSparks: The Ark, have already attracted more than two million fans of logical puzzles online. The principle of these quaint games and the tongue-in-cheek presentation delights gamers, critics and bloggers alike. 

An earlier version of NonoCraft, the logical expansion of the Nono universe, has already been picked as a Selected Project by the judges of the Game Connection America 2013. "This is our first fully bearded success and we would like to thank those brilliant judges!" said the CBO* of Beardshaker Games, Jan Napitupulu.

Currently, Beardshaker Games is looking for a publisher for NonoCraft. The team will be available for meetings at the Game Connection America.
