Press Releases

February 15, 2007 -- Veteran game designer Peter Schweighofer and his PDF imprint Griffon Publishing Studio have joined the innovative e-publisher co-op YourGamesNow.com. All game PDF products produced by Griffon Publishing Studio are now available for purchase exclusively at YourGamesNow.com, including the Any-System Key sourcebook Pulp Egypt.

“In the past I’ve debated approaching other internet storefronts selling PDFs and other games, but wasn’t overly thrilled by the terms and the lack of publisher involvement in determining policies,” Schweighofer said. “Your Games Now not only gives e-publishers an opportunity to reach a larger consumer base with greater visibility for their products, but offers them a chance to join and help shape a dynamic community of publishers.”

Schweighofer also intends to use YourGamesNow.com for exclusive distribution of upcoming roleplaying supplement projects, including Heroes of Rura-Tonga and The Infinite Cathedral currently in development. Gamers can find free support and preview materials for Schweighofer’s games, including the Pulp Egypt adventures The Charioteer’s Tomb and Enemies on the Horizon. The site also offers his other gaming projects, including the bluffing card game Office Dodger. For those seeking a taste of Office Dodger’s gameplay, a similar game, Puritan Bobber, is also available as a free download from the site.

Schweighofer will still maintain product information and support pages at the Griffon Publishing Studio website, but now relevant links, including “Buy It Now” buttons, go directly to corresponding pages at his YourGamesNow.com storefront. Readers can still find Any-System Key resources, previews of upcoming products, and other news and information at the Griffon Publishing website.

YourGamesNow.com members sell their e-products through the co-op website, but also take an active role in determining co-op policies and promoting the storefront through their existing and growing customer base. “This innovative marketplace model offers greater sales potential, customer base, and product exposure,” Schweighofer said. “I’m proud to be a part of this exciting new business community.”

Schweighofer founded Griffon Publishing Studio as a means to market his own sourcebooks and games to the adventure gaming hobby. Known for writing and editing numerous Star Wars roleplaying game products for West End Games, he has designed such period sourcebooks as Weird War II: Afrika Korpse for Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Weird Wars series and the Raiders of the Lost Ark Sourcebook for West End Games’ Indiana Jones roleplaying game. Schweighofer lives in Brandy Station, VA, with his wife Lynanne and their two cats Wolfgang and Peggy Lee.
