Stuntbird Games Introduces Pixaquarium Game Maker, The First D-I-Y Game Builder & Player

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Oakland, Calif.– August 22, 2011 – Stuntbird Games is proud to announce the release of Pixaquarium Game Maker, a Facebook-based game builder and player.

Pixaquarium enables gamers to design nearly every aspect of the game’s artwork, from the backgrounds to character’s face to the shape of the bad guys. Players can then save their unique set up and share it with their Facebook friends.

“I was inspired to create Pixaquarium while designing Jounce,” explains Stuntbird Games President Dean Ruggles. “My oldest daughter was bringing me drawings to put into that game. I realized that a game that was as much about creativity as play could be fun. I thought of it as active entertainment, which is new in the game world, in that Pixaquarium is all about being artistic and inventing a new world to play in.”

Development of a Pixaquarium app for play on mobile devices and tabloids is currently in beta testing.
