welcome to the fun zone!
...So We made a company out of it
scroll to bottom for your surprise🙊
join us for some fun
in this video👆
there was a time when we forgot to have fun...
Moment of Silence 😢
Hand over heart...😞
Wes went into consulting, and Brad to Deloitte.
We started pursuing "prestigious" careers & high salaries
but THAT WASN'T US
You see, we're Family 👨👩👧👦 & Fun 🎉 guys, not corporate guys
(Did we mention we have 15 siblings between the two of us?)
So one day, during a business trip at his hotel room in Seattle, Wes reached deep back into his inner child to create something that truly represents WHO WE ARE!
He made a card game!
and gatwick games was born!
what our journey taught us about the world
📱 We're more "connected" than ever yet experiencing record levels of loneliness😔
👨💻 Our demanding, busy lives have made us the most stressed nation in the world
👶 Too many of us have forgotten the childlike thrill of playing together.
📱 They get us off our screens to truly connect
with people that matter most
👩💻 Games get us laughing & provide relief from the stress of life
🥳 AND... we get to play & have FUN in the process!
we are on a mission to bring back real connection
by rekindling the inner child in
all of us
so why Games?

why we need a shark deal
Inventory: We grew so fast last year we had to reach into our own pockets to finance inventory. We're too big to do that this year.
Retail: Target & other Big Box retailers are extremely difficult to break into for indy game developers. The shark's relationships would be HUGE for us.
Online: Because we have to conserve cash for inventory, our online advertising budget is limited. + Sharks have Amazon placements we don't.
A shark deal would be huge for us. so we're
also very willing to negotiate
Thanks for playing!

We did our best to include the casting producers we thought could be at the casting call. If we didn't make a card for you, message & we'll hook you up!
Since the casting call was cancelled, we couldn't give you your giant game cards in person 😢, so we thought it'd be FUN to make you each your very own digital copy 😊
