The first videogame, created as part of the Dare to be Digital competition, has launched commercially on the Apple App Store.
Sculpty, which was created by Team Tickle as part of the 2010 Dare competition is now available for the iPad.
Sculpty is a physics-based platform game, in which players pinch, poke, stretch and sculpt the eponymous hero through levels, changing Sculpty’s phical form to escape the dastardly Ooja-Ooja.
If that wasn’t sufficiently exciting, Sculpty is also the first ever iPad game to receive an official PEGI rating.
Sculpty was one of the three winning games from Dare 2010, along with Twang (That Game Studio) and Mush (Angy Mango). Allthree games are now entrants in the 2011 BAFTA Ones To Watch award.
An actual commercial release of a game from Dare to be Digital has been a long time coming so we’d recommend everyone rushes to iTunes, downloads the game (the Lite version if you must) and reviews it generously (leaving nice remarks alongside).
Congratulations to Team Tickle and best of luck to ll three teams. The BAFTA videogames are handed out this Wednesday (16th March, by Dara O’Briain) at an undoubtedly glittering ceremony. If you’re not lucky enough to have an invitation, you can watch the awards live on the BAFTA website.
