As part of our 'Showcase Series', we are highlighting games companies large and small with a few quick questions to discover more about their conception, evolution, inspirations and aspirations. From the largest multi-national companies to indie games makers and even individual new-comers, we're happy to shine a light on a variety of views of the gaming industry and experiences for those at all points on the gaming ladder!
Today - ... 20 Dreams, with their first game in the 2021 Imagination Gaming Games of the Years awards!
Tell us briefly the background of your company?
We love being creative, having fun and playing games, so it just seemed a natural step to build our passion into a business. We wanted to create table-top games that encouraged connectivity and developed relationships. Karen’s background includes theatre, church ministry, psychotherapy and is the creator of our games. Sharon comes from a finance background and wanted to step away from the corporate world to create her own business. Sharon is the driver behind making our game plans happen. We launched our first game 20 Dreams in 2020.
What inspires you to make games and do you have any rules when making games?
Our inspiration comes from all the good times we have had playing games and the encouragement we have received from family and friends on our games journey. This has taken us on our quest to create games that reward creativity over logic and help develop positive relationships.
Our rules for our games are great fun, family-friendly, easy to play, creativity wins and relationship building. And our little motto, which really is just part of our rules and keeps us striving for better is ‘good enough is not good enough’.
What do you have coming up and out in the future?
As we are new to the market, we are focusing our attention on developing the brand this year. We plan to create new versions of 20 Dreams in the future, starting with a version tailored to much younger children.
