For Amuzo, the grass keeps getting greener
Today, the Amuzo team are proud to announce they have been awarded £50,000, the maximum available funding from Creative England’s one million pound GamesLab programme, to develop their own IP.
GamesLab aims to sustain and aid the growth of the most innovative games companies in the South West of England by providing grants as well as expertise.
Amuzo’s Head of Production , Adrian Smith, is delighted with the prospect of once more creating a unique brand. “Launching Tomb Raider with Core Design was one of the highlights of my career to date. Publishing something you create from the ground up is a thrilling experience; one I can’t wait to share with the team here in Bournemouth. With the support from Creative England‘s GamesLab, we believe we can create something that is not only uniquely British and great fun to play, but that demonstrates the innovative work being created by games studios here in the South West.”
2013 was a busy year for Amuzo as the studio has ported titles to seven platforms, monetising virtual content on each one. Business Development Director at Amuzo, Mike Hawkyard, added “We’re really proud of our accomplishments to date. This grant has come at the best possible time for us, allowing us to leverage our team, technology, and contacts from a position of great success.”
Set initially in a quintessentially British village, Amuzo’s latest IP, running under the development title of “Project Greener Grass” will feature crazy cosmic cows locked in an intergalactic battle against flocks of mutinous mutton. It’s going to be an action-packed arcade-style adventure that will leave players wanting mower…
