History

Early history

In late 2014 the Teaboy Games trio, Aidan, Frazer and Scott, met on the games incubator programme 'GamesHub'. The partnership scheme between East Enterprise Hub and Essex University, headed by Steven Huckle (Shark Infested Custard) is a free course to help creative individuals get into the games industry, regardless of their experience. For example, Frazer had never made a game before he joined! As a team of fresh faced graduates they grabbed this opportunity with both hands hoping to absorb as much information as possible from their peers. And thats how they landed on the name Teaboy, that and their collective love of a good brew. With only a six month term ahead of them, the team knew they wanted to have something more than a demo by the end and settled on developing an arcade style game for the mobile platform. A reaction to both their interests and also current market trends. They ended up with Fallen, a simple reaction game. Conceived from brainstorming the most simple games, such a childs block and hole game. At the end of their six month term, even their peers were impressed with their progress. Having taken advice from the likes of Lee Stott (Microsoft), Mark Ogilvie (Jagex) and Ian Turnbull (Square-Enix), their title Fallen was garnering interest from various parties. After giving a business pitch the team secured some small investment and began to turn their concept into a fully fleshed app. In the weeks following, the good news kept flowing. After displaying at Norwich Games Festival, the team were invited to display at the massive BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend in Norwich. They were also featured on BBC Look East (Tuesday 25th August) talking about life as an entrepreneur in the region, and of course talking about Fallen.
