Alex Fleetwood, CEO of Sensible Object has created one of the most exciting, successful new gaming start-ups in the UK. With the mission to make games for our connected world, Sensible Object launched in 2016 with its flagship title Beasts of Balance, a physical-digital hybrid that challenges players to stack a tower with beautifully crafted “Beasts.” This summer the company launches When In Rome, the first title in its second game series Voice Originals. The series is a result of the company’s participation in the first Alexa Accelerator, powered by Techstars, where Sensible Object executives worked closely with the Amazon Alexa and Techstars teams to create a unique fusion of board game and Alexa Skill.
