WHO MADE THE GAME?

The Shame of Life was created by a soon-to-be-wed couple, Gareth and Emily, who pooled their skills to build the game from the ground-up outside of their day jobs, in their little kitchen in Moss Side, Manchester.

“Every minute someone, somewhere is second guessing what they’re about to say. We’re all guilty of it: shaming ourselves into silence for fear of not fitting in. It’s time we break our silence. It’s time we celebrate the little weirdos we are. It’s time we beat The Shame of Life.”
