[prMac.com] Pwllheli, United Kingdom - Pixel Knights Ltd. has announced the release and immediate availability of Geiriau Gwyllt (Wild Words) for iOS and Android devices. Pixel Knights Ltd. released their latest game from their gaming studio based in Pwllheli, North Wales, UK. Following on from the success of their previous games, Stackimals, ZombieGP, Christmas Chaos and Halloween Havoc, this game concentrates on bringing family friendly puzzles to all ages.
A landmark release, as we believe Geiriau Gwyllt is the first Welsh language word puzzle game available for mobile devices, further cementing our commitment to bring native langauge gaming to Welsh players. We also wanted to bring an easy to play game to market, one which our own kids could easily pickup and play, but also one that would keep older gamers occupied and coming back for more. The 4 age rating reflects our goal to ensure this game was accessible to everyone.
Carl Jones, director and lead developer at Pixel Knights said, "I started writing games on a Commodore64 at the young age of 10, mostly because I didn't have a tape player with it to load them up. And the magazines in those days were always full of great game listings to type in. Things progressed somewhat with the arrival of the Amiga, I used to spend days writing games on that platform using AMOS. Unfortunately once I graduated from University and got a 'real' job, game programming became a distant memory. But recently I've been really captivated by mobile gaming and so decided it was time to re-kindle my passion for game development."
Geiriau Gwyllt is the company's first Welsh-only game (previous releases were bi-lingual), so expect great things to emerge from this new studio. It shows the company's growing commitment to bringing native language apps to Welsh speakers worldwide.
