about Urban Island Games
Urban Island Games was founded in New York City in 2012 in order to create experiences and offer consulting about tabletop games, digital games, and gamification. Urban Island Games is the culmination of the vision, creativity and passion of NYC gamers addicted to high quality gaming experiences.
The studio's first game, a tabletop party game called Funemployed!, released in the first quarter of 2014. Urban Island Games has various titles in the works and looks forward to sharing more games soon!
Funemployed! is a party game where players convince each other that they'd be the best for "real" jobs with unreal qualifications. Players create resumes, pitch why they would be perfect for the job, and get hired!
The jobs in Funemployed! are (mostly) real world jobs that anyone could try to be—things like a Mime, Porn Star, or Celebrity Impersonator. The qualifications, however, are usually things you wouldn't say in an interview—like how you have a pet Dragon to help convince people of your point-of-view, or how your Uncontrollable Libido makes you better at your job. Say anything to try to get the job—the only restriction for using your qualifications is your imagination!
Funemployed! was successfully Kickstarted in August 2013 and will be released in April 2014. For more information on Funemployed!, you can visit our website.
