PC BUILDING SIMULATOR GIVEN BOOST BY INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LONDON - April 19th, 2017 - The UK based independent game publisher: The Irregular Corporation has announced it’s acquisition of PC Building Simulator, in order to build on the technical aspects of the game and implement new gameplay modes.

The game has been created by Claudiu Kiss, a Romanian student and independent developer. Claudiu first made the demo version of the game available for free on itch.io, an open marketplace for independent digital creators, where it has quickly become viral, establishing a fan base on YouTube and reaching high rankings on sites such as Indie DB. In addition to developing the game itself, The Irregular Corporation is helping Claudiu to develop the highly-anticipated career mode, which will form the central gameplay of the simulator.

Talking about the overnight success of his first game, Claudiu said “I’m really happy with how people have responded to the game, I wanted to create something that would encourage people to be creative, as well as learning to build PCs without having to spend large amounts of money on parts. It’s been great to see people embracing the game and sharing their experience with others.”

The game puts players in the shoes of a PC builder, working within a shop to create a fully functioning gaming PC. The game features a large array of detailed and accurately rendered components from motherboards to CPUs that respond just as they would in real life, players have the ability to experiment with the installation of these components, using tools such as thermal paste and standoffs to prevent short circuits and breakdowns. Fully animated installations let the players see exactly where each part slots into the computer.

The game provides a tutorial system, which guides players step by step through the PC building process. Using detailed instructions, the simulator explains each component and function and allows players the

freedom to preview their own creations and play independently when they feel they are able.

Irregular Corporation Producer, Stuart Morton said: “ With this only being his first title, Claudiu has demonstrated a real knack for game development. He has put real focus on building a tool that’s in-depth and educational, while keeping a sense of fun with traditional gameplay elements. He’s created something really unique, and we’re looking forward to working with Claudiu to help build the game into a more polished and rich experience for players.”
