DogBiscuit nominated for a children’s BAFTA

Northern Ireland game developer Blackstaff Games has been nominated in the Interactive – Original category for its game DogBiscuit

As the player you are the creator of the world in which DogBiscuit, RichTea and ChocolateNibble have their adventures. Throughout their outings to picnics at the beach, or meeting aliens in space, they make friends with a tribe of crayons, unlocking new colours and tools to change the environment and progress through in the game.

DogBiscuit is a great game for the entire family; The user interface is intuitive and objects can be drawn very simply or in greater detail, depending on the player’s age. Unobtrusive music and lovingly designed animations round off the experience and turn it into a pleasant trip into the world of drawing.

DogBiscuit nomineed for the Develop Awards 2016

Northern Ireland created family game DogBiscuit has been nominated in the New Games IP (Mobile) category, at the Develop Awards in Brighton.

DogBiscuit was created by Northern Ireland based game developer Blackstaff Games who received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI.

The game sees players follow DogBiscuit, with his variety of colouring pens packed, on his journey through many exciting worlds. But something is missing from all of them: colour!

There are over 20 options to design the worlds individually and to draw beautiful things for DogBiscuit and his crayon friends.

In total, there are 108 companies in the running for awards, encompassing not only developers, but also tools providers, services firms, outsourcers and specialists in VFX, audio, QA and recruitment. DogBiscuit is among 36 games nominated in the Creativity section of the awards. 

The winners will be announced at the Brighton Hilton Metropole on Wednesday, July 13th during Develop: Brighton 2016.
