2013 – A Year In Releases

2013 – A Year In Releases

2013 has been quite a year for the games industry in Scotland.  From GTA V breaking all records to become the biggest entertainment launch in human history, to the brand new development team Things Made Out Of Other Things scooping the BAFTA Scotland award for their first title, Coolson’s Artisanal Chocolate Alphabet, it’s been a busy year for game creators.

We thought it would be nice to give you a quick rundown of the games which were released over the last twelve months and show the scope and diversity of the games industry in Scotland.  We’ve compiled this from our own updates, from the people we’ve met this year and the games we know were released.

If you know of any titles – or awards – we’ve missed, please let us know.  So, without any further ado and in vaguely chronological order.  Here are the games released by Scottish games companies in 2013.  Complete with LIVE LINKS to each and every one (wherever possible) because we care – and you feel that…
