downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Games awards event set to attract top talent to Brighton

While downthetubes focus is British comics, we're aware that many creators do work for the games industry, so readers might be interested in the upcoming Develop Industry Excellence Awards in Brighton tomorrow (20th July).

Over 550 top designers, programmers, artists and studio bosses from around the world - representing some of the hottest games development talent in the world - are to attend the Awards, which will also be getting a huge national media presence.

The creative teams of many critically-acclaimed and best-selling games will be in attendance to find out who has won key awards that acknowledge technical innovation, pioneering visual arts, attention-grabbing audio accomplishments and commercial and business prowess.

Amongst them will be the minds behind hit titles such as Angry Birds, Crysis, Bulletstorm, Limbo, Minecraft and Need for Speed, plus the companies that invented the best-selling Kinect and PlayStation Move motion controllers.
