Today is a monumental day in the history of VooFoo Studios, as we proudly celebrate our 10th birthday!
10 years might not sound like too long in the grand scheme of things, but, in the topsy-turvy, completely unpredictable and sometimes unforgiving world of video games, this is quite an achievement, especially for a small indie studio! It’s safe to say we couldn’t have reached this milestone without your support, passion, feedback and enthusiasm, for which we’re extremely grateful!
No birthday would be complete without a party, so last week we invited close friends, colleagues (and whoever else we could persuade to make the trek to Birmingham on a week night), to Nuvo to celebrate!
Of course, it hasn’t always been easy or glamorous, far from it. Starting out as just a three-man team working out of a small box room in Wolverhampton certainly had its challenges and there have been many ups and downs, highs and lows along the way. It has, however, always been interesting and we wouldn’t want it any other way!
Hustle Kings gave us our first break [Pun alert!] back in 2009 and earned us two Develop Awards nominations in the process, which really helped to establish the studio. We’re really proud of everything we’ve achieved since then, from developing the incredibly successful ‘Pure’ series of games to our move into publishing last year with the release of Mantis Burn Racing®, our first owned IP.
Whilst it’s certainly good to look back at what we’ve achieved over the past 10 years, with the team hard at work on multiple new projects and exciting plans for Mantis Burn Racing®, it’s the future that is exciting us most right now!
We can’t wait to share news of our new projects when the time comes…
Here’s to the next 10 years!
