Multiplay, organiser of the UK’s biggest gaming festivals, is pleased to announce that multi-award winning UK studio JAGEX will be attending Insomnia gaming festivals for the first time in 2014, bringing the highly anticipated Transformers Universe to Insomnia51, taking place at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena April 18-21, 2014.
Ace of Spades, the indie hit signed by JAGEX, will also be on-show, with its unique first person action sure to be a big draw amongst Insomnia fans at the expanded Indie Zone.
The Indie Zone at Insomnia festivals is a great place to showcase new, exciting and unique ideas in the UK, and Insomnia51 is no exception, with some incredible titles on show for the first time, including:
Guild of Dugeoneering
The Marvellous Miss take
Awakening of Heroes
“Having JAGEX, the UK’s largest independent developer, at Insomnia has been a goal we’ve been shooting for and one I’m glad we’ve achieved. Transformers Universe is a title thousands of our fans have been looking forward to, and we’re excited that they’ll be able to get their hands on the game at Insomnia51,” Said Craig Fletcher, CEO & Founder of Multiplay.
“We’re also pleased to expand our Indie Zone, a new concept introduced at last year’s festivals to really show off the talent and creativity of British indie developers, and this year’s first Insomnia festival delivers on that promise.”
Nicholas Cooper, producer of Transformers Universe, was equally as excited to be at the show. He commented: “Insomnia51 is, without a doubt, one of the highlights of the gaming calendar. To have Transformers Universe there, and to have the audience able to get ‘hands on’ and experience the game first hand, is something that we’ve been massively excited about.” He continued: “The hard work that the entire Transformers Universe team have put into the game is there for everyone to see on screen, and we cannot wait to be at the show and meet some of the fans in person. It’s going to be an amazing weekend!”
Insomnia51 takes place at the Ricoh Arena over Easter Bank Holiday weekend, Friday, April 18th to Monday, April 21st 2014.
