Leading independent publisher and developer Team17 have today announced that their Great British Gam Jam 2014 award-winning game (R)evolve is now available to download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for free via the App Store.

(R)evolve was originally prototyped in just 48 hours, as Team17’s entry into 2014’s Great British Game Jam which took place on the 6th-7th February and featured participating teams from UK developers Team17, Bossa Studios and Future Games of London. The theme of the jam ‘resilience’ was revealed and judged by independent body Ukie.

Ukie CEO, Dr Jo Twist said “The standard of the games created was phenomenal. It’s so great to see such creativity and diversity being demonstrated by some of the UK’s best developers, especially within such tight time constraints. We congratulate Team 17 on their winning game and thank all the teams who entered for their fantastic work. We are honoured to have judged the games and we are looking forward to being part of the next jam.”

Debbie Bestwick, Managing Director of Team 17 said “Winning the Great British Game Jam is a terrific achievement and I’m extremely proud of the Teamsters who created (R)evolve. To develop something in just two days is a difficult task but the team certainly rose to the challenge. GBGJ14 is a great showcase for the talent the UK has within its studios.”

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
