Add-A-Tudez Entertainment Tells Us Their Story to Success

Posted: Updated:

Add-A-Tudez Entertainment is known locally and nationally as a video game creator, a place for students to learn how to create their own games and Montana's first Playstation certified studio. But they are a lot more than that. These two brothers, Josh and Trevor Hughes, have been down a rough road. It all started in 2002, when Trevor was diagnosed with kidney failure. Josh explained, "That destroyed everything. We had to go bankrupt. We had to move in with our grandparents. We lost our car."

In short, times were tough. They knew they had to make a change, and working a 9 to 5 job was not cutting it. That's when Josh said, "We need to try crazy, and crazy was taking our love for video games and turning it into a business." Luckily, the Great Falls Development Authority didn't think they were crazy. They found out about their goals, and that is when magic started to happen. The Hughes' brothers learned how to network, pitch and write business plans, and now, nearly a decade later, they are back on their feet.

After 3 years, they are about to release Burst. A game that gives the player an opportunity to light off a multimillion dollar firework display, all of which is over our very own 10th St. Bridge. This career path has also allowed them to help children. They host camps to teach them how to create their own games, and for Trevor, this is by far his favorite part.

So while things were not easy for these two brothers, switching over to crazy and utilizing their love for video games has not only helped themselves, but also our youth. If you have a child or know one that would like to get involved, their next camp starts February 8th.
