Sumo Digital BAFTA Triumph With Doctor Who Game
The most recent episode Doctor Who adventure game - The Gunpower Plot - won the coveted 2012 BAFTA Cymru Award for Digital Creavity & Games. The award was collected by one of the game’s Executive Producers, Anwen Aspden, who thanked the efforts of many people including Phil Ford who wrote the adventure, Voice Director Gary Russell, Steven Moffat and ‘Matt Smith, for being a brilliant Doctor.’
The Gunpowder Plot was the fifth and most epic Adventure Game – a huge, powder keg of a story which starred Matt Smith (the Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy), Arthur Darvill (Rory), Ralf Little (Guy Fawkes), Emilia Fox (Winters), Dan Starkey (Kaarsh) and Phil Daniels (Geoffrey Plum). It marked the return of the Sontarans and Rutans and even featured the Silence, alongside real-life characters and situations from London, 1605.
All five Adventure Games are available to download now and so if you fancy a journey to The City of the Daleks, an encounter with the Cybermen, Vashta Nerada or a desperate battle in the TARDIS, take a look at them now. Each game is accompanied by videos featuring the cast and crew and a number of fantastic galleries.
So if you can’t wait for the Doctor to return at Christmas, you can still travel in the TARDIS and fight his most famous foes - all thanks to the Adventure Games!
The 2012 BAFTA Cymru Award for Digital Creativity & Games was won by the Doctor Who Adventure Game - The Gunpowder Plot (a co-production with BBC Wales Interactive & Learning, also executive produced by Charles Cecil from Revolution Software, one of video gaming's most revered creators. And developed by Sumo Digital, one of the UK's leading game developers). The award ceremony was held in the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay on 30th September, 2012.
Sumo Digital is please to announce that New International Track & Field for Nintendo DS has been awarded as the Best DS sports title of 2008 by IGN. The game is an updated version of Konami's classic arcade version game Track & Field.
Another awesome classic gets a fantastic revisit, this time from Konami and the Sumo Digital development team. New International Track & Field brings back the rapid fire action of the classic and its console versions to the Nintendo DS – you can certainly play in the brand new "rub the touch-screen back and forth" control scheme but purists can alternatively bring the button-mashing back into the equation. The super deep online component makes the competition absolutely fierce on the handheld, and Konami went the extra mile to put tons of slick references to other games in the company's backlog of titles.
