The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in Wales, has today announced  Mechanical Story by Skyfish Studios Ltd , as the winner of the British Academy Cymru Award for Games and Interactive Experience.

Mechanical story 

A Mechanical Story, from Skyfish Studios Ltd, is a challenging, physics-based puzzle game that sees mechanical contraptions meet real time game-play, with players having to correctly solve a puzzle by building working contraptions across 48 carefully crafted levels. Skyfish Studios Ltd was founded in June 2014 by Mel Wah, Lucy White-Lewis and Yucel Karamanli and A Mechanical Story is their first collaboration. 

The game beat competition from The Doctor and the Dalek (BBC Cymru Wales Online & Learning / Somethin’ Else) and Infinity Runner (Wales Interactive) to win the award.
