About

The Game

Quests and Encounters takes all of the best parts of our imagination and combines it into a game that brings people together and will have you laughing for hours.Embark on strange adventures and complete unusual quests that will put you into downright dangerous and preposterous situations. Using only the loot in your hand construct cunning plans - the more ingenious and ridiculous the better! Succeed and get your mitts on a shiny gold coin.

So if you like pointless quests, loot and sporks and know how to think your way out of a monster battle with an elastic bands and a brick? Well this is the game for you!

Check out our Kickstarter video if you haven't already to learn how to play, it only takes a couple mins to learn and can be played by 3 or more players.

About Us: 

Tasteless Creations ltd

Tasteless Creations remains small consisting of only three members William Emery, Joe Longden and Matthew Nicholls.

William Emery (Designer and Mastermind) 

Will is an illustrator who has been using the Tasteless name for his artwork for years, a former student of Coventry University he has now taken on a full time job as a UI artist for Playground Games, but one thing has never changed his passion for games. A passion that has grown to include many more tabletop and party games that he played during his time at university. This is also where the idea for Quests & Encounters was born and developed over numerous beers and cups of coffee. Bringing together elements of our favourite games and embodying a philosophy found in the best party games, creating fun and conversations for groups of old friends and new ones.

Joe Longden (Author and Semi-professional Grizzly bear)

Joe is a writer and long time friend of Will and has been working with him on multiple projects using the Tasteless name. He has a similar passion for games both video and tabletop, having started to play Dungeons and Dragons with a close group of friends with him as the dungeon master, this new experience in the world of tabletop has helped to sculpt many of the ideas that would later become prominent parts of the Quests & Encounters project.

Matthew Nicholls (Numbers guy and Crusher of dreams)

Matt is an accountant and good friend of both Will and Joe since childhood, he is the newest member of the Tasteless team, having spent time in Australia studying 'Accounting and Finance' in Brisbane, Matt has returned to the UK with the perfect skill set to move Tasteless from an idea to something more, taking on an important role as co-founder of the company and the person standing between us and disaster.

Island8 

We're ISLAND8, a small but ambitious design consultancy made up of five passionate designers from Coventry University. Although working just a couple of hundred meters away from Will for three years we did not have the pleasure of meeting him and playing quests and encounters until NEW DESIGNERS of 2017, where a few of us were exhibiting just down the hall. On one fateful day we strolled past Will and his exhibit and couldn't help but be drawn to the stand out game with its interesting illustrations and unique gameplay. After a few seconds of Will explaining the rules we were hooked in creating the most bizarre stories to get out of equally disturbing scenarios (or was it the other way around?). It very quickly became the place to go when crowds drew thin at ND.

We knew immediately that we wanted to be a part of this game and Wills journey, we offered our support and services in package design to help will get his game to market and through kickstarter. We very quickly became engrossed in the process researching kickstarter, sourcing manufacturers and bringing together small start ups to benefit each other. The collaborative approach to this kickstarter has been extremely rewarding, and has opened us up to the potential benefits of working with other small start ups in need of design to help bring their project to life.

Risks and challenges

Tasteless Creations are new at this kind of project but we have banded behind it; it is something we have faith in, are passionate about and excited to show the world. As this project has grown so has the team working on it and with each addition comes added strength and ability to overcome the challenges that lay ahead.

Being our first project we can not promise that problems will not occur, but we will be actively informing you about them and how we plan to overcome them so that we can meet our deadline and produce a game of the highest quality for those who are as excited as we are about this game.
