Published on: 8th November 2017

UK-based games developer PlayFusion was a big winner at the annual awards last week.

This year’s Games Industry Awards was organised by TIGA, the network for games developers and digital publishers and the trade association representing the video games industry.

PlayFusion was identified by a panel of industry experts for its Lightseekers game, which was awarded the Technical Innovation award. The 50-strong firm, which has studios in the UK and the USA, also scooped the Best Small Independent Studio award.

Mark Gerhard, CEO and co-founder of PlayFusion, commented: “We were delighted to see the passion and hard work from our entire team recognised by the Industry. To leave with two prestigious awards was a real privilege and honour, we are very thankful to the judging panel for selecting us as their winners. It has been a whirlwind two years as we worked hard to bring our platform as well as first game title, Lightseekers, to market this summer and these award wins will only spur us on more we set our sights on an even bigger year in 2018.”

PlayFusion has partnered with Tomy toys to create a collection of Lightseekers smart action figures, trading cards and accessories which are now available from Debenhams, as well as Toys R Us stores and Amazon.
