Pair plan to forge industry collaboration and sell on prototype ideas to publishers

Two young designers from Scotland have stepped into the industry spotlight through the founding of their firm One Zero, and are aiming high with plans to sell their idea for a new FPS to a top publisher.

Ewan Dodds (aged 14) and Gregory Foster (aged 16) are childhood friends who live just outside Edinburgh.

Despite their youth, the two already have secured a £500 business grant from the Prince’s Trust’s young entrepreneur Business Programme which the two are planning to invest in hardware and middleware to build their prototype. Smartly, the two don’t think they’ll be able to turn their idea for a triple-A shooter into a fully-fledged game alone – so instead are hoping to create a intellectual property they can sell to a publisher or developer.
