Changing Times at Six to Start
by Adrian and Dan Hon
Two year ago, when we founded Six to Start, we knew that it was going to be a real challenge; it's the first company we've started, and there was a lot we had to learn. Over those two years, we've been joined by a brilliant team of developers and game designers, and we've made award-winning sites like We Tell Stories, Liberty News, Young Bond: The Shadow War, Ununited Eurasia, and Smokescreen, for companies including the BBC, Channel 4, Disney, Penguin Books and Fremantle Media. With the end of some of our larger projects, we're restructuring Six to Start, and that means we'll sadly have to part ways with some members of our team. We couldn't have wished for a better group of people to work with - we wish them well, and we're incredibly proud of the work we've created together.
When we first set up Six to Start we knew we would be taking different roles at different times within the company (brothers get to do that!); as a result, Adrian is taking on the role of CEO. Adrian will be doing more of the business side and Dan will be able to focus more on sales and business development, so in practice, you probably won'tnotice any change at all.
2010 is going to be a big year for Six to Start - we have a lot of really exciting projects in the pipeline, and they're some of the coolest and most important ideas we've come across. Watch this space!
