Visitors to last weekend’s Light Up Poole digital art festival helped launch a new App from Bournemouth-based Rogue Games to players around the world.
FLO Game was beamed onto the wall of Lighthouse, the UK’s largest regional arts centre, where visitors to the festival become the first to try their hand at the game. FLO has gone on to top the Racing category of the App Store in 31 countries including the USA, Russia, Japan, Argentina, South Korea, France and Spain.
Adrian Smith of Rogue Games explains, “FLO is an app designed to blur the boundaries between games and art. Being given the opportunity to exhibit our work at Light Up Poole validated our success in this objective, helping us to both deliver a unique experience to the streets of Poole and gain global App Store promotion. We’d like to extend our thanks to everyone involved.”
Light Up Poole formed the first part of 40th birthday celebrations for Lighthouse, and the projection of FLO on the side of the building drew large crowds of all ages eager to test their skills in the fast-action one-tap game where you harness gravity to gain speed.
Light Up Poole Festival Director Libby Battalia enthused, “FLO certainly kept our visitors entertained, with many people downloading the game to continue their experience at home. We hope success stories like this help Light Up Poole to become an annual event.”
