Press Release - Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint for iOS trailer

Veteran game developers John Pickford and Ste Pickford (The Pickford Brothers) today unveiled the trailer video for their upcoming iPad and iPhone game "Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint".

The trailer is available now on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrjVSnx5_MI

In summer 2008, while trying to decide what their next project would be, John and Ste discovered a mysterious bundle of papers hidden in the attic of the family home.

The bundle included a tatty blueprint showing the design for an mysterious electric billiards game, an invention of their great-great-grandfather Joseph Pickford.

The brothers knew what their next project had to be!

The Pickford Brothers have created a paper-based trailer for their new game - a deep and insanely addictive puzzle game inspired by their ancestor's unlikely invention.

"I've always said that game designers should work out their ideas on paper before developing the software," said Ste Pickford, designer and artist, "and we've taken this to its logical conclusion by reconstructing the whole game with cardboard, spray mount and a laminator," he continued.

"What, I've got to actually code this now?" said John Pickford, designer and programmer, "and it's got to be finished in two weeks you say?"

Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint, the Pickford Brothers' first iOS game, will be launched on the App Store in a few weeks time.
