ESKI-MEMO, a game by a Hispano-Breton author, sold in India and on an Inuit theme. Everything is possible !
In ESKI-MEMO you are a young Inuit who just comes back from a fishing session, and comes back on the ice with his kayak boat. He must now cross the icy landscape in the blizzard. But the ice is treacherous under his feet ! And there are bears lurking around. The fisrt player to reach the family igloo wins the game.
ESKI-MEMO is a family game with a little memory, luck, fun, a moving board and a completely frosty atmosphere!
It is published by the Indian publisher Pegasus Toy Kraft and available only in India, and mainly in major cities, such as Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, and Hyderabad.
A long time ago, Djeco asked me to work on an « ethnic » line of games. So I designed the adventures of Kiko, an adorable character that traveled on all continents.
I made KIKO WITH THE PYGMEES (Africa), KIKO WITH THE VEZO FISHERMEN (Madagascar), KIKO WITH THE TRUMAÏ (Amazonia) and KIKO WITH THE INUITS (Groenland). The project wasn’t launched, but the ideas were there.
In 2008, KIKO WITH THE INUITS became CRAC LA BANQUISE, it was supposed to launch a new line (Asmokids) with another Fraga game (LES GIVRÉS A LA PLAGE). Unfortunately, the back quality of the production had them cancel the project. Once again, the inuits were back to the fridge !
Eventually, a small indian publisher, Pegasus Toy Kraft, was the first to publish the game. It is available in India only, in big cities such as Mumbaï, New Delhi, Chennaï, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
In 2015, the game was also released by Taïwanese publisher Kanga Games, in Taïwan and around, under the name POLAR RUSH.
