While Team Junkfish, went further and said:
We’re really happy to be in the running for Develop’s New Studio award! It’s great to see so many other Scottish companies across the board of nominations and to be sitting with some awesome company in the New Studio category too. So good luck to them all!
The very best of luck to all of them.
