Prestigious Award Nomination for Local Indie Games Studio

Staffordshire-based Indie games studio Centrifuge have announced that they are finalists at the prestigious TIGA Awards – for their latest mobile game – Virome.

From the makers of the popular drawing game Interference, Virome is an infectiously addictive colour-matching puzzle game.

Nathan Beardmore, lead developer, and former long-time Stone resident said “We took part in a game jam a few months ago and made a quick version of the game – it received such great reviews that we made it into a full game and released it . We were thrilled to learn that it is up for Best Casual/Social Game and Game of the Year at the TIGA Awards.”

The lavish ceremony takes place in November, at the V&A Museum in London. Fingers crossed for a local win! TIGA is the network for games developers and digital publishers and the trade association representing the video games industry.

Berni Williams, the other half of the team, also works part-time at Stone Library. She said “We attended the awards last year – as our popular drawing game Interference, was nominated for three awards. We were pipped at the post by much bigger games companies – but maybe this year – who knows?”

Virome is now available on Windows, Windows Mobile, iOS, Kindle and Android – just search for it in your app store or check the website for download links:
