Scottish nominees range from Ant Workshop’s twin-stick ghost-busting Dead End Job, to Outplay’s touch-based candy-busting Craft Candy Blast.
Most excitingly, we have two nominees in the Education/Serious games category, where Lowtek’s A Familiar Fairytale: Dyslexic Text Based Adventures, which helps dyslexia sufferers deal with the frustration of the condition, goes head-to-head against Stormcloud’s financial education FPS, Island Saver.
The sole Scottish representative in the academia, company, leadership, services, and tool awards categories is the awesome MHA Henderson Loggie, which is running for the Best Tax and Accountancy Firm award.
