About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

by Judy on July 12, 2007 @ 10:15 a.m. PDT

The '80s Game With Martha Quinn offers fans of the 1980s a new way to relive that exciting time period when brat packers, break dancers, new wavers, valley girls, and mods ruled the world.

Funkitron announced the development of a new trivia title based on 1980s pop culture, for which original MTV VJ, Martha Quinn, will be the face and voice of the game. Covering several different genres including movies, television, sports, politics, music, and celebrities, The '80s Game With Martha Quinn offers fans of the 1980s a new way to relive that exciting time period when brat packers, break dancers, new wavers, valley girls, and mods ruled the world. In promotion of the game, Martha Quinn plans to make a special guest appearance at Casuality, the Casual Games Conference, in Seattle on Wednesday, July 18th, where she will be available for media interviews, pictures, and autographs.

The '80s Game With Martha Quinn features three game modes: Free Play, Challenges, and Episodes, which include 50 special "Episode" games with themed questions. Martha's real voice and likeness will guide you through the game as you test your wits to become the ultimate '80s trivia expert. Featuring more than 3,000 questions from the totally awesome decade, The '80s Game With Martha Quinn is a fun-filled walk down memory lane, enhanced with high-score postings, bonus rounds, and an accompanying '80s music track.

"No one captures the nostalgic fun of the 1980s better than popular VJ Martha Quinn," said Dave Walls, President of Funkitron, Inc. "Rolling Stone magazine readers selected Martha Quinn as "MTV's Best-Ever VJ" and her professionalism and humor have certainly shined throughout the development process. I know that casual gamers and fans of the '80s will experience hours of laughter and enjoyment. Like Martha, the game is like totally cool, fer shur."

The '80s was a revolutionary era. Sandra Day O'Connor became the first female Supreme Court Justice, Geraldine Ferraro was the first woman to ever run for Vice President of the United States, and Martha Quinn was on the frontlines of video music revolution. "The staying power of the '80s is amazing," said Martha Quinn. "Madonna, U2, and The Police are packing stadiums, MTV's still going strong, and I have my own Funkitron '80s video game. If only I kept my Sassoon jeans-oooh la la!"

The '80s Game is licensed from Intellinitiative Game Company, which produces the best-selling trivia board game, The '80s Game. The '80s Game With Martha Quinn is set for release on the PC in the third quarter of 2007. More information on the game may be found at: www.the80sgamewithmarthaquinn.com
