'Beer Money Inc.' is the newest mobile game launched by Newport-based brewery Tiny Rebel. The game tasks player with brewing beer, selling it, hiring staff and eventually building an impressive brewery. The concept was inspired by Tiny Rebel's own journey as a brewery, from its beginnings in a garage to owning a £2.6m purpose-built brewery. The app also drew inspiration from co-founder Bradley Cummings’ favorite games, Drugwars.
Beer Money Inc. was developed by the Cumming's brother, Lee, and sister-in-law Susan, who together make up Tiny Rebel Studios. The studio is currently best known for producing games for the BBC Doctor Who series. The game spent six months in developments, with artwork being completed y the brewery's creative director Tamsin Baker. Beer Money Inc is currently free on both the App Store and Google Play.
