The Ugly Little Tadpole
March 2022

Well, I guess it is more a tale of three ugly little tadpoles... 


Long ago in the year 2020, in a swamp under the old rotting oak tree, a toad was born. Well more like three little toads actually... 


The toads - Chris, Katie, and Mark - are long-time friends comes business partners to create what they hope will be the most croakingly good-time games company you ever did play, but how did we get here? 


Katie and Mark met all the way back when they were but bairns (Scottish word for children) in a small town in South-West Scotland, and Christ has it been some journey since then. The both met Chris in 2014 when he auditioned for them to be in the haunted attraction they were directing at the time (we did say it was some [weird] journey!).  


Fast-forward to 2020: Lockdown, boredom, zoom calls, alcohol. We are big fans of anything fun and challenging like Escape Rooms, Haunted Houses, and of course - BOARD GAMES! Because of this we had always talked about how cool it would be to make make games and the kind of ideas we would do - and lockdown finally gave us time to realise that this was something we COULD do! There was many a night we spent from here throwing around ideas, drinking wine over zoom (one time Mark fell down the stairs without spilling a drop!), and just having a great laugh while trying to create an amazing game - and thus G.R.I.M. INC. was spawned! 


Through a lot of work from here, and a lot of learning we finally had our playable copy, ran a successful kickstarter campaign (something I’m sure there will be a future blog post on) we are where we are today. Standing on the precipice of an amazing opportunity about to order our first game, and with BIG plans for the future, it's going to be bananas! 


Again, we just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us so far, we wouldn’t be here without you and we are determined to be the most incroakable games company in the world! 


… and that is the story of how three little tadpoles grew into one big Terror Toad.
