Nice to meet you.
I'm Richard, a London based product manager and a graduate of business & computer science at UCL. I am the creator of BEKU, Hungary's most popular mobile game for parties and social gatherings.
Creator and developer of the #1 social party game app in Hungary
An immensely popular app in Hungary, BEKU is a party game that groups of friends can use during their get-togethers to get to know each other better, enjoy exciting challenges, and have meaningful conversations. 4 years ago, I spotted a very specific gap in the Hungarian app market, an exciting party game that’s enticing to people who want a fresh take on the party game genre, made with their native language and culture in mind.
