This past month we have been busy with the BAFTA Young Game Designers 2012 Award winners advising and turning thier game concept 'Rolling Scotch' into a working prototype game, now renamed as Stick Em Up.
For those unfamiliar with what BAFTA is, The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) supports, promotes and develops the art forms of the moving image; film, television and video games, identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public.
The main character in the game Scotch, is a roll of tape with a badass cowboy attitude. He's the Clint Eastwood of inanimate objects. Traveling across the wild West, he's being hunted down by the authorities for a wrongly accused crime. As well as sheriffs, Scotch needs to fight through the creatures of the west in order to reach his goal- his family in California.
Congratulations to the team on thier award and watch the demo shown at last nights Award ceremony in London below;
