It’s always a pleasure to hear from a new development studio. Pocket Starship is a start-up, based in Edinburgh, which has just released Rotor, its first game for the Xbox Live Arcade Indie channel.
When pressed by Scottishgames for a bit of background, founders Nick and Richard told us: “We’re a small (but perfectly formed) outfit of two hardy souls. One of us is a proud member of the RTW diaspora, having worked on MyWorld for just over 3 years, and the other counts himself fortunate never to have been corrupted by the AAA games industry. In both cases, we’re delighted to now be working together with the sole and express aim of making the kind of games that we can point to and be proud of. We’ve known each other since our university days, but decided a few months ago that the time was right for another Scottish developer to raise its head above the parapet and hurl itself into the Indie maelstrom.”
Which is a sentiment we can all get on board with…
In the meantime, you can find Pocket Starship on the popular social channels including Facebook and Twitter. You can visit the company’s own website, or simply head on over to the Xbox marketplace and buy Rotor.
