Play With Others, Not Yourself

November Roundup – Check out what’s been happening in the ever evolving world of Wewana:Play

Wewana-Play-logoWOW – what a November, and we are not even done yet!

We only officially became a company some 8 weeks ago, when Mez and myself (Dee) joined the Oxygen Accelerator, in order to propel our vision and business plan into a full blown reality.

Little did we know just how much we would sacrifice eating, social lives and at some points our sanity in order to announce some happy news today… we finally submitted our first beta version of Wewana:Play to the App store just today!!

It’s Party Time!!

To celebrate we are going to continue to work hard all day, meet gamers face to face at our Social Gaming Event at Urban Coffe tonight and then network with about 70 other entrepreneurs at a regular meetup….

Wait, what? That is what we call celebrating??!

Nope, but submitting the app is simply step one of our long journey…  It’s been a huge task to get to this point from literally having nothing at the start of October, but we will truly celebrate when we have 1,000 gamers who regular use the app and love the tools that we provide them.

Ok, to tell a little truth, when we meet gamers this evening we will be playing Halo 4 with them, so I guess you can say we will take some time off. I’m sure there will be a few hi-fives and maybe even some group hugging, but tomorrow it’s back to work towards our showcase day at Launch48 London next week.

Life in a startup sure is fast paced, but it’s incredibly rewarding too. Here is a quick roundup of our month so far:

The start of November began in style with the ‘alpha’ testing of Wewana:Play app. The concept worked!

As in the norm with startups, you work late fixing things which should have worked last week! Here are Mez and Abdul pretending to work.

 

 

Branding starts to take shape:

 

Wewana:Play Rolling Banner

Time for some branding… we wanted to be noticed where ever we went so why not start with a 2m rolling banner.

 

Wewana:Play tshirt and badge

No branding is complete without a T-shirt and badge…

 

GAME  – Midnight launch events – Wewana:Play had special permission to gain feedback from their customers:
