Sketchbook Games Ltd Joins The ClusterJuly 15, 2016
Innovation Martlesham is very pleased to welcome its first Gaming Company to the cluster. Sketchbook Games is a video game development studio currently working on story focused platformer, Lost Words (formerly The Last Word). The company was founded by game designer Mark Backler who has worked in the games industry for 10 years at companies like Electronic Arts, Sony and Lionhead Studios on games including Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Fable 2.
Lost Words is a 2D exploration game that takes place between the pages of a girl’s diary and an imaginary fantasy land. It sees players moving different words around the screen to solve puzzles and has a strong focus on narrative. The fantasy world sees you using different words to affect your environment, such as burning obstacles out your way using the word ‘fire’, or using ‘hope’ to illuminate your way through dark caverns. An early trailer of the game can be seen here.
