Nothing beats old-fashioned family bonding time spent playing engaging video and board games. Moments such as this bring parents closer to their children. And as for children, they are comforted by these memories even in adulthood. Game developer and family man, Keith Alan Spaar, is bringing family members closer by creating games that they can enjoy together.
Spaar is currently developing his own toy and game company called Jimmy Q, LLC. Having a team of talented and highly motivated designers, artists, and creators backing him up, Spaar is confident that his company will take off. Spaar is working with Kickstarter, an American public benefit corporation that maintains a global crowdfunding platform focused on creativity, so he can introduce his toys and games to the world.
Aside from Kickstarter, Spaar is also in the process of developing an Amazon store that he will call Spaar Fun & Games. This will enable him to sell his products directly to gaming enthusiasts and clients looking for wholesome and fun games that they can enjoy with their families. His Psycho Game Series is made up of four different games that are currently being produced in his studio. These games are Psycho Chess, Psycho Backgammon, Psycho Reversi, and Psycho Tic-Tac-Toe.
Before the Pyscho Game Series, Spaar developed the Psycho Checkers for the benefit of his children – two sets of fraternal twins. The game allows players to control not just one army but two. It is quite fast-paced and very exciting as four different armies move to the center of the board at the same time. The game is also able to accommodate eight players if the family has a bigger group of people.
The creation of Psycho Checkers is a result of Spaar’s desire for his children to experience a part of him. By creating an original game, he knows that it will stay with them for life. The Pyscho Game Series is not just an income-generating project; it is valuable to every member of his immediate family.
Prior to establishing his own company, Spaar worked for over 30 years in Amscan, the largest designer, manufacturer, and distributor of decorated party goods and party accessories in the world. It later came to be known as Party City Holdings, Inc. Spaar started as a Mechanical Artist for the company. He held other key positions in the company over time that included being Designer, Art Director, Product Manager, Product Designer, Product Director, and Director of Creative Product Development.
It was during his last two years in the company that his true passion and calling was revealed to him. He was assigned to a project which required him to create games and toys. Spaar considered those times to be his most exciting and memorable experiences. He knew in an instant what he needed to do when his direct supervisor left the company and eventually led to his expected departure.
He may only be starting in the business industry, but Keith Alan Spaar has more than enough years of experience to guarantee that his venture will be an awe-inspiring success. It may have taken him some time to act on his true passion in life, but success is not dependent on the owner’s age. It is dependent on one’s willingness to achieve it.
