Cotton Pops game for Preston Guild

A unique collaboration between RM Productions in conjunction with Games Design students at UCLan and Lancaster University has resulted in the first Preston Guild mobile App game. RM Productions’ (sister company to Black Bull Studios) challenged them earlier in the year to come up with a mobile games idea in celebration of the 2012 Guild.

Georgina Cronshaw, Will Davies and James Burton’s Cotton Pops game idea was selected in May. RM Productions then introduced the trio to two students at Lancaster University, Jamie Briers and Will Moorhouse, who had the programming skills needed to complete the project.

Music for the game was created by Nathaniel Jorden Apostol (NJ) as part of a collaboration with Uclan BA (Hons) Music practice students.

Dynamic new game ‘Cotton Pops’ was launched at a special event at the new Preston Visitors’ Information centre where the team demonstrated it to key members of the Preston Guild team and the media.

The app, which was developed to mark the Preston Guild, brings together Lancashire's traditional textile industry with modern mobile technology.

The game is designed for Apple's iPhone 4 or later handsets and iPad but releases for other manufacturer's handsets are planned.
