Strawdog Studios moving due to insect infestation

For immediate release

Derbyshire (UK) based developer Strawdog Studios are relocating to new offices at the iD Centre in Derby. The team, who are currently working on PlayStation2 title "Bugs of War", found it necessary to relocate as their previous premises were unsuitable for insects. The company's new address is:

The iD Centre,

The rtc Business Park,

London Road,

Derby, DE24 8UP.

Strawdog Studios current project is the PlayStation2 project "Bugs of War", a 3rd person insect action game. - An army of mutant insects have infested Metro Towers, with their insect leader presiding over his army from the penthouse apartment. To counter this threat scientists have created the Worlds first 3-inch-high insect assassins (the game's two playable characters). The game play is balanced between fast paced combat and problem solving. The two playable characters work together as an insect tag team to battle their way to the top of Metro Towers eradicating the enemy as they go.

About Strawdog Studios

Strawdog Studios was founded by Simon Morris in 2003 and recently expanded following the addition of two new directors, Paul Smith and Joe Lewis, both of whom previously worked at Eurocom and Free Radical Design. Between them the management team has a collective experience from over 40 published titles and over 30 years in the games industry. That's a lot of doggy years!
