Soon to launch with the development of its own in-house application toolkit, LOGIC, Teesside's Twisted Studio plans to become a major player in the handheld sector of the software development market. Formed as a graduate business within the Tees Valley's DigitalCity project, the UK's leading digital business hub, Twisted Studio provides further evidence of the wealth of digital talent being generated in the North East around Teesside.
Created by three of the university's recent graduates in computer games programming and design, Twisted Studio has announced ambitious plans to establish itself as a creative company routinely associated with highquality products, developing and distributing enjoyable and innovative gaming titles on a regular basis.
As part of its market entry plans, Twisted Studio plans to specialise in three distinct areas.
The first will witness activity in proprietary technology with the launch of the Rapid Application Development, (RAD) toolkit, LOGIC. This innovative product will offer support to those involved in developing advanced and addictive game play.
Conceived and constructed out of the creators' experience of time consuming bottlenecks in projects, it identifies these areas and seeks innovative ways to eliminate them. The LOGIC toolkit is designed to provide users with the fastest and most flexible technology available.
Products form the next sector of Twisted's plans, developing its own imaginative and original titles, using in-house technology to minimise production times.
Thirdly, Twisted will offer services within the industry, as a third party team to develop interactive media for personal computers, video games machines, smart mobile devices and web platforms.
Commenting on the launch, Twisted's Production Director, Graham Bryan remarked, 'Our development team has a range of revolutionary games and applications conceived, devised and prepared, and in the process of completion. We are also working on fully licensing our LOGIC toolkit to empower developers to produce high quality software with noticeably lower overheads. It's an incredibly exciting time and the entire team is looking to the future with great confidence.'
