Ever watch movies like Indiana Jones, National Treasure or Survivor the TV serives or played a game like Uncharted or Tomb raider and thought: “I wish I could have an adventure like that”. It is Evolva Games mission to make that wish a reality: to create experiences that make you feel like an adventure hero solving an ancient mystery. That feeling of walking through nature or an unknown place and discovering something unique, like a very old box with strange symbols on it. And as soon as you open it, you know you’re part of something enchanting, part of a lost secret that you have the chance to uncover.
Equally it is Evolva Games mission to bring people together. As kids and even now as adults, our fondest memories are of doing activities with friends and family. It didn't matter if you succeeded or failed, the best part is the journey together and creating those moments that the next day you grin about. And we want to keep those moments alive.
This is what Evolva Games do: mystery-outdoor and cryptic puzzle games, offering unique and real-life adventures, where you become the adventure hero of a mystery to unfold.
Born in South Africa, but raised in Mozambique and having lived in Australia, Brazil, England and Wales; Josh has achieved his open-water advance scuba-diving accreditation, FGASA level 1 certificate, worked as an outdoor activities instructor (including: rock climbing, canoeing, abseiling, survival skills and team building); trained in the British Royal Marines; worked in operations management both in London and Kwazulu-Natal; and attained 1st class BA hons in Business management in London.
Since as a young child, it was Josh’s wish to grow up and experience the adventures from Laura Craft (tomb raider), Nathan Drake (Uncharted) or Ben Gates (National Treasure). Growing older the wish expanded into areas like Myst: Riven, Rose Da Silva (Silent Hill) and Ralph Sarchie (Deliver Us from Evil). Josh yearned for their reality to become his own, and began searching for it. With each new venture undertaken, it seemed the reality you wished for in the beginning may never happen. When faced with that predicament, you have two options, settle and join the world or build your own reality yourself. The latter seemed more attractive, and shortly after Josh created Evolva Games.
