Lazy Tea Games
Games Design & Development students Tom Lawrence and Josh Tait (2023) created Lazy Tea Games whilst on their sandwich year placement with the Enterprise Team. Lazy Tea has been created to support the development of new games products to market and is designed to improve the accessibility of games to those with a range of conditions such as colour blindness and dyslexia.
This year the pair are prioritising the development of their premier card game Cryptic Creatures.
With the help of an investment readiness mentor from the ERDF-funded ScaleUp 360 accelerator programme, they are now preparing to launch their Kick-Starter campaign to support the launch of the product in 2023.
The duo has already created an engaged community brand which they use to promote their passion for Game Design. It provides a space where budding designers can network and collaborate, primarily through use of Instagram, YouTube and Discord.
They are also expanding their digital presence to create courses and products designed to teach and inspire the next generation of game makers.
Earlier this year, Josh and Tom were guest lecturers at Sheffield Hallam University, advising students on research, playtesting, and social networking.
