Swallowtail, the team who created Tick Tock Toys accepted the BAFTA Ones to Watch Award at the 2012 BAFTA Video Games Awards. The award is presented annually in association with Dare to be Digital.
Over the summer of 2011, applications from over 70 universities worldwide were whittled down to just 15 teams to compete in Dare to be Digital. Hosted and run by the University of Abertay Dundee, Dare to be Digital brings in games industry professionals to hand-pick and mentor the teams, each of whom create their own game.
The teams then competed for the exclusive BAFTA ‘Ones to Watch’ award which was presented to team Swallowtail for their game Tick Tock Toys at the GAME British Academy Video Games Awards 2012.
I came into the industry because I wanted to see more women working in games – and in turn creating more games for women. It is such an incredible privilege to win.
