Video game developer bound for expo

Major trade show date for firm

A Manx video games producer is to showcase its wares at a major software expo.

GamesCo, based in Douglas, claimed to be the Island's first fully native games developer after launching here in late 2015.

It produces online tie-in games based on well-known brands and movies.

Next month, it's appearing at the EGX trade show in Birmingham - which is set to attract around 15,000 delegates and attendees.

It's all to promote the beta version of new release Grimm: Dark Legacy, and the pipeline title JCB Mars Pioneer.

Director Dave Mousley says it's also an opportunity to promote the 'supportive ecosystem' for tech businesses on the Isle of Man.
