We exclusively reveal WIST (Wales Interactive Scripting Tool) in this month's Edge Magazine. Its our in-house tool we've been developing over the last year to help us create the interactive story games and films we've become known for publishing. WIST enables writers to easily create interactive story scripts that can be played in text form before we go into full production.  The WIST file created also drives the development process from early concept through to production and even creating the multi platform versions. If you're interested in producing interactive, non-linear stories for games, films or any other media, you will definitely want to pick up issue E336, on sale now. A big thank you to Jen Simpkins who interviewed us at E3 for this outstanding 4-page feature 🙏

We had a great trip to Los Angeles last week for E3. We crammed a lot in and had some amazing meetings and interviews about our current and future games and interactive film titles. Also met up with some old game industry friends and made lots of new ones as well. We came away feeling very proud of being involved in such a prestigious event and overwhelmed to meet such a good bunch of people. We feel very fortunate to be part of the global games industry and still after all these years love making and selling the games! 😀
