Fite games was initially started by two friends, Finlay and Terry (get it? being game-related was convenient), with the simple remit of producing quality products to help people enjoy their hobby.
Kickstarter seemed like a no-brainer for us because we're starting this whole project with (what we think is) a good idea and the space in our garages. The whole premise is that if no-one is interesed by the concept it won't be funded; this helps motivate us to make sure we're producing great things and also helps us make sure we're not investing money in something that's no-one else is interested in.
Both of us have grown up loving games and being around other people that do. The games we produce are an attempt to support exactly the kind of family and social interactions that we have continued to have, and enjoyed immensely.
