Take a look at the launch of ScottishGames.Biz a news site dedicated to the Scottish development community and run as a group blog by several industry insiders.
The Scottish sector has been through some hard times over the last few years with reasonably big names like Vis and DC Studios going belly up. But like some kind of mythological beast, new companies are always sprouting to replace their predecessors – Cohort, TAG Games and Denki among them. And of course, arguably the most important Scottish developer ever – DMA – lives on in both Rockstar North and Real Time Worlds, the latest venture of DMA founder Dave Jones. Nowadays though, a lot of north of the border studios are staying small and specialising in niche/emerging areas like mobile gaming and interactive TV.
