Fledgling video game development studio Uncanny Games formed following the creation of PC title ‘The Uncanny Fish Hunt’. The beautiful and accomplished adventure game was written by the company’s founders while they were studying at the specialised video game school Supinfogame in Valenciennes. ‘The Uncanny Fish Hunt’ went on to win the Unity Award for ‘Best Visuals’ at the Unite conference in November 2010 while the studio won the event’s ‘Rising Star’ award. At Game Connection Europe 2010, the title was nominated for the ‘Selected Projects’ award and won the ‘GamesIndustry.biz Choice’ award. In May 2011 the title scooped the Independent Propeller Award for ‘Best Visual Design’ at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Since then the team of six have turned their talents and passion for detail to the crafting of OIO, an original puzzle platformer set in a wooden universe due for release on PC and Mac in autumn 2011.
