Hybrid working is new to everyone. Staff are in different places, teams are semi-detached, and isolation is a challenge. Group learning is now more important than ever. It is also more difficult.
We must bring people together, wherever they are. Games are the perfect solution for hybrid working. They are fun with a serious purpose and clear outcomes.
Our games are content-rich, subject-specific, and evidence-based. They help you solve problems, build relationships, and encourage improvement.
However you work, our games create a "safe space" for groups to collaborate and learn online, face-to-face or both.
Since 2004 we have developed 100+ games that make training, teaching, and engagement more effective and enjoyable.
Zoom, Skype & Teams meetings can be fun and effective.
ZeST games work though a simple website, which anyone can use. Just share your screen and the games do the rest. Players can be online and face-to-face. Lots of talking, learning and fun.
We are constantly developing new games with clients to help them solve specific problems and issues. We have created over 100 games, which address a wide range of issues and you can see some of them below. Most of these games are available to buy.
However, if your issue is not addressed by an existing game, we could develop a new game with you. It is a very efficient process and we can build an entirely new game in under 8 weeks.
Our unique commercial model includes sharing revenue if we sell a new game. So, your game would be useful, and it could be profitable. Contact us to discuss your idea.
