Happy Otter Games is a board games company established in 2014 initially for the publishing and distribution of our first board game Creature College™.
The company is owned and managed by Orhan Ertughrul. Orhan has 35 years of game play experience but has also worked in the games industry. He has nearly 20 years’ professional experience as a product designer, owner and manager.
At Happy Otter Games we’re passionate about making games that are fun and engaging for a broad audience. With vibrant artwork, exciting themes and robust game play, we create games that are aimed to just make you smile. We work with a hugely talented international team of artists, designers and media experts to bring you games that you’ll love to play and that will stand out on your gaming shelves.
We have been privately funded throughout the development of Creature College and are looking for a successful Kickstarter October 2015 to drive the sale and distribution of this first title in our portfolio.
We believe strongly in ethical business and support fund raising activities for the International Otter Survival Fund.
Happy Otter Games is managed by Orhan Ertughrul. Having spent almost two thirds of his life in school he was persuaded on his 30th birthday to go and get a real job. Mostly he's discovered that this entails sitting around in rooms full of people looking at power point slides with occasional breaks for coffee and texting.
Most of the time he creates products for other people but last year his friends foolishly said to him "Hey Orhan, why don't you create a game." After thirteen months of him becoming a virtual hermit between bouts of feverish play testing they're probably wishing they hadn't! He is passionate about games and would love to hear from you if you have any ideas or just happen to know any really cool stuff!
We're very fortunate to have built a massively talented international team of board game ninjas to help us with the design, illustration, marketing and printing of Creature College. With an artist in New York, designer in Argentina, animation studio in Montreal and a printer in China it's just possible that we could be more distributed but probably not without surgery.
We're working with Wingo Games based in GuangDong Province China for the printing of our game and we'll be releasing more details of the rest of the team as our project progresses along with regular updates on our art and design work.
