      I was chatting about this with a friend who’s also a regular here. Basically we’ve been looking into Swansea as one possibility for university. I recently read Peter’s Scottish thread so thought it would be worth giving this a go.

      Does anyone know of any studios based in Wales? Been racking my brain but I can’t think of any. They’re all in England, Scotland and Ireland.

      It would be good to know of companies around there. Thanks! :)

      Hiya Ronny,
      Just so happens I came across this a few weeks ago:

      Broadsword Interactive, the developers of Dance:UK

      This small but energetic and successful team, located in an idyllic coastal town in Wales, designs and produces games for the PC and consoles. The company also provides a conversion service to and from the PC, Mac, and Playstation formats from concept to delivery. Their current project is Dance:UK for PS1 and PS2.

      That’s one anyway! There’s gotta be more.

      Cheers,
      Ian

      Thanks, guys! From what I’ve seen there’s a real effort to attract more development companies to Wales as well as trying to bring about more start-ups. Sound slightly familiar?

      I see what you’re getting at Mal, but the URL problem our site’s having just saved us from your joke attempt. ;)

      A very interesting read on the Llamasoft history page. Sure it’s just some guy rambling on about his life, but that’s the point. :)

      Certainly has, Peter. They actually have two of interest. One is the 3D Animation degree and the other is in Creative Computer Games Design. EDIT: That’s actually the Swansea Institute of Higher Education, which like Swansea University, is also part of the University of Wales.

      Too bad Gamasutra has no links to any Welsh companies. I found the same with most sites.

      Just one of the good things that I like about Swansea is that there’s a boat heading to Cork every day. Means if I end up going there I won’t be missing the shindigs!
