Mac game maker
announced Thursday that it has shipped its recently completed card game 3D Crazy Eights to retailers throughout North America.
Freeverse describes 3D Crazy Eights as “the classic suit-following card game” suitable for kids and adults alike. It uses Freeverse’s 3D Card Games engine and also supports online play through Freeverse’s GameSmith game matching service.
3D Crazy Eights supports a variety of different rules and also works with two scoring methods, including customizable card point levels. A parental lockout feature is also available.
3D Crazy Eights supports “PicturePuppets” technology, which allows users to create unique avatars for online play — you can use digital photos of your own face (or, presumably, anything else you wanted to use) to put yourself right in the game.
3D Crazy Eights retails for US$24.95. It is also available as a less expensive downloadable shareware product ($19.95), but the retail box comes with a special bonus — a copy of Freeverse’s code-breaking puzzle game Enigma.
