What’s in store for the future?
In 2019 we launched two brand new games - Jibbergiggle and Frozen Unicorns, and have now sold more than 100,000 games in total. That's not to say that the year has been without challenges, there have been plenty.
Ultimately, we're focusing on doing more good things for our customers, our team and the wider world, and on our own approach to business which starts with having fun and doing good. With that in mind, we're currently working on a brand-new product that helps bring people together on a deeper level, which I'm very excited about. It's still in development, but we're getting close to being able to share more about it, so watch this space!
What would you say to someone with a fledgling idea?
Believe in yourself! When I launched Gamely my confidence was at an all-time low. Don't focus too much on what you don't have or how you might not be perfectly suited to the task, really believe in yourself and give yourself permission to at least fully explore your ideas.
And don’t spend too long on making perfect prototypes or designs of your idea. Get something together as simply and cheaply as possible and get it out there for real life feedback - and be willing to accept those comments, take them on board and keep improving until you've got something you feel happy with.
