First five Creative Europe-funded video games now released

Since its launch in 2014, Creative Europe has supported the development of over 60 video game titles through its MEDIA sub-programme, the first five of which have seen releases this year. They are:  

Angel Adventures

An internationally acclaimed and multiple award winning adventure game from Norwegian developer Ravn Studio, featuring mischievous angels, fierce pirates, dangerous dragons and ice monsters.

Available now on iOS.

Gigglebug FACE RACE

Finnish developers Gigglebug Entertainment have developed an original face detection algorithm that allows the device camera to recognise positions of the eyes, cheeks, teeth, tongue and tilt of the head. The game evaluates the expressions and game gives feedback in the form of a playful star rating. The more accurately you twist your expressions, the higher score, and bigger laughs you can get.

Available now on iOS in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Save the Queen!

An interactive adventure game designed and created for young children, allowing them to play as the hero of a story they create. They can choose from several magical worlds with surprising atmospheres, stimulating challenges and objectives to complete. Developed by Italian company Ebooks&kids the game is now available in 10 languages.

Available now on iOS.

SteamWorld Heist

A space adventure game from Swedish studio Image & Form, with turn-based tactical shootouts, where you aim in real time and perform awesome bullet-bouncing trick shots. Join Captain Piper Faraday, smuggler and occasional pirate, as she recruits a rag-tag team of steam-driven robots and sets out on a daring adventure to board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships.

Available now on Nintendo 3DS eShop. Coming to Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Wii U and iOS in 2016.

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power

A 3D fantasy platforming game, from Finnish studio Frozenbyte. Trine 3 takes you on a fairytale journey full of action, puzzles and adventure. The game allows you to reunite with the three heroes from the series; a Wizard specialised in conjuring boxes and levitation, a stout-hearted Knight with powerful fighting abilities, and an elusive Thief, great at fighting from afar with her bow and at overcoming obstacles with her grappling hook.
