Great American Ideas, LLC Launches MiniStick©, A New Interactive Game Product

MiniStick© has improved gamer scores by more than 50 percent

 
PRLog - Aug. 23, 2012 - ST. LOUIS -- Great American Ideas, LLC., an innovation company based in St. Louis, announces the introduction of The MiniStick©, a keyboard mounted joystick designed for 360-degree use on most computer and notebook keyboards. The interactive game product allows for better game control and higher online game scores.

The MiniStick© attaches to the users’ keyboard by self-adhesive hook and loop pads to allow for more dynamic game play. MiniStick© was invented for PC and Mac gamers who desire an easier way to operate their favorite games by simply attaching the MiniStick© to the arrow or AWD keys. When gaming is complete, the user can simply removed the joystick from the keys and resume normal keyboard function

“We’re excited for the impact MiniStick© will have on the gaming world,” said Peter Shaw, one of the three developers of MiniStick©. “We expect the MiniStick© will not only enhance the gameplay experience, but change it.”

Unlike some joysticks, MiniStick© does not require the use of plug-ins or software making it compatible with all games.  “Whether the user is a 5 year old playing a free on-line game or a 35 year old using the stick in a scenario game, the MiniStick© will handle it”, stated Shaw.

Responses from focus groups about the MiniStick© have been both positive and favorable by aiding gamers to achieve levels never before reached within their favorite games. During independent product testing trials gamers improved their scoring averages by more than 50%.  

The MiniStick© is now available through the company’s website (theministick.com) at a suggested retail price of $9.95, and is expected to appear in retail stores nationwide in September. Gamers will be rewarded for registering their MiniStick® for a chance to win prizes and participate in online gaming contests.
