Come See Toytles: Leaf Raking and Continent Race at 60 FPS Fest

GBGames will have a table at 60 FPS, “a festival for videogames, boardgames, and illustration” taking place tonight from 5:00pm – 9:00pm at Mainframe Studios, located at 900 Keosauqua Way, Des Moines, IA.

There are three floors to explore with over 70 studios full of talented artists and arts non-profits, a nacho bar, a photo giveaway, arcade games, board games, virtual reality, and more.

I will be showing off two games.

Toytles: Leaf Raking

One is my own leaf-raking business simulation game Toytles: Leaf Raking, which puts you in the role of a budding entrepreneur looking to earn enough money to buy yourself the Ultimate Item(tm)! It’s a game designed to teach responsibility and strategic thinking, currently available for Android and soon for iPhones and iPads.

The other is a game I’ve been working on for two and a half years for Byron’s Games called Continent Race: World Puzzle. It’s a geography game in which you locate and place countries on a world map, earning stars along the way. It will be available for Android, iPhones, and iPads soon.

The story of Byron’s Games is incredible and inspirational, and I’m fortunate and honored to be part of their efforts to help other kids. An extended hospital stay and a passion for geography gave Byron the inspiration to help other kids learn and have fun — at the same time! Bryon’s Games also has a Continent Race board game which I’ll also have at the table. You can get the Continent Race board game and know that a portion of Byron’s Games profits benefit select children’s charities.

So if you’re in Des Moines, come see me at the Fest! I’d love to talk with you!
