Two budding game designers succeed with the help of the UK Games Expo

Expo helping launch games

Push It and Side Quest will be for sale at UKGE 2016 (stand number C23) after exhibiting prototypes at UKGE 2015.

Last year Side Quest and Push It were a mere twinkle in the eyes of Steve Venezia and Leeson George (by twinkle we mean hundreds of hours of blood, sweat, and gaming fun). 

Me and Steve decided to take the plunge, and embarked on showing our beloved creations at the UK Games Expo, both of us with prototypes that had only been tested with by our family and friends. We had no idea how the game-loving public would react to them. Well, the answer seemed to be a resounding ‘Yes’. 

Push It (a table top skill game) launched a crowd funding campaign at the Expo and was funded 4 days later. Side Quest (a whole dungeon crawler in a pack of cards), after having a mammoth show, went hard into R&D, then 6 months later was triple funded. Now with the UKGE looming, for the first time Push It and Side Quest are fully fledged games up for sale. Its been a crazy year, going from prototype to to production-run games, but both of us have made it, all thanks to the UKGE.
