After last year’s formation of development studios in Singapore and Belgium, 10Tacle Studios starts off the year 2006 with a majority shareholding in Blimey! Games in London. The team of 45 people led by CEO Ian Bell is specialised in the development of ultra-realistic racing games, such as GTR, and GTR Legends.

Blimey! Games Ltd employs many of the talents behind the award winning titles “GTR: FIA GT Racing Game” and “GT Legends”. Furthermore, Blimey! Games is developing the sensational followup to “GTR: FIA GT Racing Game”, as an independent subcontractor to Simbin Development Team AB in Sweden.

"We couldn't be happier" says Ian Bell, CEO at Blimey! Games and former Head of Studio at SimBin Development Team, AB. "Our successful history and great relationship with 10Tacle has made this alliance an obvious choice. 10Tacle's significant investment in Blimey! Games underscores the strength of this relationship, their faith in us to continue delivering award-winning products, and our commitment to bring extraordinary new experiences to the explosive next-gen market."

“With this shareholding, 10Tacle Studios underlines its claim to develop internationally outstanding top-quality racing games. In our opinion, the Blimey! developers are the most talented team in this segment worldwide and we are very much looking forward to the forthcoming game developments“, Michele Pes, CEO of 10Tacle Studios, emphasises the importance of this new acquisition.
