Studio Name: Virtual Miniatures
Location: Manchester, England
Virtual Miniatures is an indie studio setup with the goal of bringing the fun and excitement of turn based table-top miniatures games to the digital realm. Our vision is to create an application that delivers as close to a tabletop gaming experience as possible whilst taking advantage of what a computer generated game can achieve.
When we deliver on our vision, we will have a computer game that offers players a chance to experience a table-top skirmish battle with miniatures that come to life. Fighting, firing and dieing as they fulfill their commanders orders.
Virtual Miniatures was setup by Martyn Hawkins. A professional software developer with over 20 years experience building business, media, and gaming applications. As a turn based strategy game enthusiast, Martyn began playing table-top of video games of this genre in his youth. Now he wishes to uses his knowledge of turn based strategy gameplay and software development to build an engaging PC title that will allow players to engage in turn based skirmish conflicts.
