Altering a downloadable game to a boxed game

by Gareth Sammer
(London, England)

I have written quite a few downloadable murder mystery games which sell quite well but have been thinking about trying to get them as boxed games to try and target high street stores are reach a larger audience.

Do you think this is a good idea and if so, how do I go about transferring them to a boxed version? Are there any companies you recomend and what sort of cost do you think I would be looking at? The boxed game would contain:

1 Hosts information booklet, 12 guests information booklets, fake money, a pad of accusation sheets, a pad of invites, name tags, a map of the murder location.

My response:

I don't have any experience of publishing boxed sets, so I can't really help. You might ask Mystery Writer's Ltd (here's their site) as they used to do boxed sets but now only do downloadable games.

(And perhaps there's a story there...)
