Double Eleven Releases Minecraft Dungeons – Creeping Winter! 

Seen as though it’s #NationalCodingWeek, we want to give a shout out to Teesside’s own Double Eleven for its new release of Minecraft Dungeons – Creeping Winter. 

The team at Double Eleven is ‘kicking ass and making games’ with its new release of Creeping Winter! Players can experience an icy biome, take on freezing mobs, and find cool items to take their game to new heights. 

Both DLC packs are included in the physical retail version of Minecraft Dungeons – Hero Edition, so “Go forth and fight the freeze!”

Salesfire Expands into Second Office 

Salesfire, the local wiz’s in conversion rate and website personalisation, has expanded into its second office in Sixteen/26, Albert Road, Middlesbrough.  

As the team moves in floor 2, Salesfire is expanding both the Telesales and Business Development team and looking to hire 10 Telesales and five Business Development Managers, wow!  

Rich Himsworth, CEO said: This has been a long time coming and it’s so exciting to see the company grow at such a quick pace.  

“Although we would have liked to have launched under different circumstances, we’re excited to enter 2021 with a brand new space for the team and plenty of room for our continued growth.” 

As the pandemic rules are becoming stricter, a launch party was a no go. However, the team has been delivering gift packages to its neighbours, which you can see here.
