The UK’s creative industries are one of our biggest success stories and a big part of that is our leadership in video game production. Now we need to nurture the next generation of talent, and the Government’s UK Games Fund and Tranzfuser have been set up to do exactly this. I wish all the entrants good luck in the competition and look forward to seeing the prototypes as they develop.
After revealing the toy in 2016 to impressed industry insiders, SwapBots won financial support from UK Games Fund during the summer. Now the public will get their first chance to try SwapBots from March 1st as the Kickstarter campaign launches at GDC San Francisco and beta test toys are distributed to hundreds of eager players.
