Description

We're a three person team making games based out of Plymouth! We have worked on a variety of different project, for a wide range of different people.

History

Starting out

We first formed the team to produce a client project during our second year of university - the project was called Rhythm Fun and was intended for young children to teach them rhythm and keeping a beat. It was a really informative experience about how we functioned as a team and we really started to develop our own systems for working together and managing our time effectively. It also taught us a lot about the roles we preferred and what kinds of tasks were best suited to each person.

Exploring and making something bigger

After Rhythm Fun, we wanted to explore working together some more, so looked for some game jams we could enter. The one we ended up making something for was the GETA Game Jam for 2019. The theme was "Contrasting Elements" and it was 72 hours long. This was really interesting because it taught us about working on a much shorter time frame, with a way more fast and messy style of development.
