Shoreditch indie games company Big Potato is focusing on international expansion, aiming to have at least one of its games in over 17 countries by the end of 2018.

Leading the charge for the company is the award-winning party game, The Chameleon, which will be available in 11 new territories.

The plan for the firm’s expansion doesn’t stop there, and next month Big Potato will be exhibiting its new family and party games at the international toy show, Distoy in London.

Emmanuelle de Lestapis, the new head of international sales at Big Potato, said: “It’s amazing to think there will be Big Potato Games all around the world from Brazil to Korea, and it’s always exciting to see our games being translated into different languages.

“We have got lots of new games looking for homes and ready to travel, too, so I am looking forward to seeing what opportunities Distoy will bring.”
