Description

We're a small team consisting of a trio of recent university graduates that have set off on an adventure to make engaging and social games that can reach a global audience. Since setting off on our quest, we've found ourselves winning awards and bringing virtual reality entertainment to a variety of UK based events.

History

Graduation

All the team members of Shuttershade Studios graduated from the University of Huddersfield in the Summer of 2017. Having worked together for a number of years across a range of different projects they decided to enter a competition called Tranzfuser which is fronted by the UK Games Fund. Over the period of 10 weeks they took a VR game prototype that they had developed and pretty much rebuilt the whole thing. The game, now known as Hyper VR Party Ware was taken to EGX where the team competed against 22 other University graduate teams for the chance of winning £25,000 in government grant funding. Against the odds they became one of the two winning teams that secured the grant funding.

Founding the Company

Since winning tranzfuser, the Shuttershade Studios team went on to found their own company Shuttershade Studios LTD. and could finally consider themselves an official company that's developing games independently. The company was founded on October 4, 2017 where they oversaw the release of their previous work Pocket Galaxy, ported that game to Android and then continued developing Hyper VR Party Ware.
