We are John Hayes and Mark Michael, two friends and collaborators who endeavour to create original pastimes that unite family and friends. 

We don’t have a huge team of collaborators and designers behind us. But we do have a decade-long creative partnership. Over the last 10 years, the more extroverted one of us (John) founded the Winchester Film Festival and steered it towards international success. He is also founder and editor-in-chief of the satire magazine, SMUG, for which the more introverted one of us (Mark Michael) provides the cover designs. Mark also exhibits artwork around the world and is author of the soon-to-be-published dark humour book Cold in the Sun.

In 2020 we created the label Smugingtons Games from which to launch our creations. Parking Debacle is our first title. We hope it is the start of a fun journey into pastimes that will keep you entertained and amused for years to come.

We are currently at the Final Testing Stage before production of Parking Debacle. It’s probably our most important stage as it helps us ensure that people will have as much fun as possible playing our game. To ensure they do, we need as many people as possible to tell us what they like about Parking Debacle  and how they think we can improve.  

If you’d be happy to help us by becoming one of our 100  Game Testers, you can find out a little more about it by clicking the ‘Become Game Tester’ button below.
