A few years ago, I had this crazy idea. What if Third Eye Games made a family-style game that kids could grasp, but parents and adults could have fun playing as well!? Thus, Mermaid Adventures was born, with Camp Myth: The RPG and Infestation, An RPG of Bugs and Heroes to follow, each nominated for the Best Family Game at the ENnie Awards in their respective years. It did start out crazy, and I remember people thinking that targeting RPGs at kids was just a silly idea… but I believe that the industry has proved the naysayers wrong.
The next step for 2016 seems logical: Create a corebook for the Pip System to solidify the system and give people the ability to make their own games. On top of that, we’re already working to revamp our original settings and develop half a dozen others to be bundled together in an awesome Kickstarter later this year. While we’re continuing to release our own Pip System settings, Third Eye Games will have easy-to-use licensing rules in place upon launch, so you can release your own material, whether professional or just fan work!
We’re very excited about this new venture and will have more info on system tweaks, dates and info for the Kickstarter, and details about the new settings coming along shortly. In the meantime, enjoy the new logos! We have two of them: one to use if your game is more family friendly, and a second for game with a more traditional slant.
We hope you’ll come along for the ride.
