What have you learnt about yourself building your company?
We had to work amazingly hard for a long time, and most importantly build teams of amazing people!
As a business, what have been some of the biggest challenges have faced to date?
At Wicked Witch, Daniel wears many hats, and always has. From Producer, Lead Programmer, Lead Designer to Managing Director. Wicked Witch has developed product for some of the biggest brands in Australia and around the world on nearly every software platform.
During this time Wicked Witch has also built on their own Intellectual Property by producing their own game engine and software titles culminating in the 2012 release of Catapult King for Iphone and Ipad. Catapult King currently has over 13 Million players world wide, reached number one in over 100 countries and received several awards.
Wicked Witch now boasts an enviable catalogue of games built for third parties, their own IP, and products developed (using games technology) for the corporate sector.
The main challenge during all of this is securing the funding for some of our most creative visions and ambitious projects!
