If you're new to my work: I am Emma May, I run Emmerse Studios as a solo independent artist, game designer and product developer. My first game Quirk! was developed in 2017 - a twist on go fish, where you act out characters to win cards from other players, then steal, block and stop your opponents to become the Quirkiest. It became a popular game, winning awards, becoming a best-seller and spawning two follow on games, Quirk! Legends and Quirk! Monsters. I sold over 11,000 copies in just over two years, retailing in Waterstones and 100's of other shops across the UK.

In 2019, I licensed the game to Gibsons where we internationalised the game and launched in June 2020 in the wake of the Pandemic. The Gibsons Quirk! is the version you can buy today and includes two copies of the game inside the box, now retailing in John Lewis and selected Waitrose stores in the UK.

The decision to license my game freed me up to create more aspects of the Quirk! world, I developed Mischief and the Tree, the first of a 6 series children's picture bookin 2020, focusing on viewing ourselves and the world around us in a positive way and Emmerse Yourself, the story of how I turned my own character designs into a popular card game and business lessons other creatives can benefit from.

My latest project in the Quirk! world is two-fold. In the beginning of 2021, I wrote a story called Quirk! The legend of the Chaos Monster, this is what my Patreon Channel is all about, I am developing the story into a graphic novel and need help and support along the way to keep the project financed to enable me to produce it. The story focuses on how Mischief becomes Mischief, it's set around Mischief and the Tree. You'll find out in this story why he finds the tree in the first place! Then once I have time to develop Mischief's short stories (children's picture books), these will be side spin offs of his time living in the his Treehouse, full of the lessons Mischief learns from the world around him.

Secondly, I produced the app game: Quirk! Digital Card Game, while this a digital version of the card game, made for single player. I have included within the app, hints to the larger story I have developed in the Quirk! World. The graphic novel will tie all the characters together!
