Milksop Games to compete for the 2019 Tranzfuser Award

We’re very excited to announce that Tranzfuser & UK Games Fund have chosen BA (Hons) Games Design graduates Milksop Games to compete for the 2019 Tranzfuser Award.

Milksop were also the winners of the Jamfuser game jam back in March (as voted for by the public).

The 13 chosen teams will work on their individual games over the course of the summer, getting a playable demo ready for a large consumer games show in the autumn. There they will compete for the attention of the playing public, standing alongside the AAA games of 2019.

This year’s competition also sees the teams attend a bootcamp-style Practice Pitch event in Dundee. This will be in preparation for the full pitch to the UK Games Fund team in the autumn where the winning team will receive £25,000 for the development of their project.

The Practice Pitch event will determine which teams go on to exhibit at the consumer games show later this year.

Robyn Murphy, Team Leader at MilkSop Games, said: “We feel super honoured to have been chosen from a selection of amazing teams to represent our hub in Tranzfuser 2019!

“This was a dream of ours from way back last year and before the beginning of our third year, so to be chosen is an achievement in itself! After our success in Jamfuser 2019, we are excited to show what else we can do and show the advantages of what diversity can bring to the game development process and hopefully to the result.

“We also just can’t wait to get stuck in, have fun and continue making awesome games!”
