about_origins

Et Games started life as Pucket Enterprises, named after our first
game. It was founded by David Harvey in 2009, with help and
encouragement from our friends at Swerve Concepts. Ben Lewis joined
when we started trading at Christmas ’09, bringing the team to two.

The funds to get the company going were initially Dave’s redundancy
pay from his credit crunched former employment (wind farm analyst),
followed by some generous investment from old friends (a BIG thankyou
to Mr Hanton and Mrs Evans). The first order of 200 Pucket games sold
out quicker than we’d dared hope, and so we ploughed the money back in
for a larger second order. Since then we have been on Dragons’ Den,
got investment from Streetbank founder Sam Stephens, and launched two
new games.

There are two ideas that motivate our work. First, we think our games
are fun. Second, we believe that business can make the world a little
bit better, if done in the right way. We have to admit that the second
bit wasn’t our own idea – for both of us, our efforts to do business
ethically (and aesthetically) are inspired by our Christian faith.
