PRESS RELEASE

FUZE Technologies Ltd is very excited to announce a plethora of renowned pixel artists have offered their gaming assets to be included with FUZE4 Nintendo Switch.

FUZE4 Nintendo Switch is an intuitive and incredibly easy to pick-up application for Nintendo Switch, more than powerful enough to create professional looking games that play beautifully.

Content is king!

Game assets are all the graphics and sounds required to create great looking games. To help new users and even seasoned pros to get started we’re including tens of thousands of game graphics, audio samples and 3D models across, but not limited to, 2D Platform, Racing, RTS & RPG, Puzzle, Shoot-em-ups and Beat-em-up genres. And just in case you run out, you can create your own or even purchase additional game packs directly from the Nintendo e-shop.

We’re reaching out to budding and accomplished artists who’d like to see the extra publicity. Please do get in touch as we’d love to hear from you. Send a mail to us at contact@fuze.co.uk.

If possible send a few examples and if you have anything you’d consider exclusive and very, very good, then we’re open to discussion.

So far, Pixel Art heroes Kenney, Eder Muniz, Ravenmore, DinV Studio and Untied Games have all agreed to
allow us to include their content with FUZE4 Nintendo Switch.

The bundled assets are currently valued at over $150 and this will only rise as more artists submit their work. With FUZE4 Nintendo Switch retailing at less than £30, this represents incredible value for money. FUZE4 Nintendo Switch will be available Q2 2018 with additional gaming content to be made available via DLC add on packs. Pricing will be confirmed nearer the launch.

Back at FUZE HQ

Senior project manager, Dave Silvera has been scouring the web for high quality game content to include in the final version while lead programmer Luke Mulcahy is finalising the core specifications, adding new commands and optimising his code to within a nanosecond of its existence.

Ok, truth is we’re all here, on the farm, working our proverbials off [sic]. Dave comments “life under the whip cracking Jonnyboy is a tough life indeed.”, “More assets boy, compose another tune lad, and, do another tutorial before you leave” he commands.

Luke on the other hand, in his Marvin like monochromatic tone pronounced “Jonnyboy is right once in a hundred times. The only excitement I get is watching him suffer my awesome skillz – poor lad, doesn’t stand a chance, now hmmm... another biscuit or a sip of soda, you know what, I’ll have the cake… this is the life.”

Project Leader Jon Silvera, or the Paragon of Judgment and Execution as he is affectionately known, is quick to step in, “I have them exactly where I need them. All your codez and audio filez are belong to me. Mwhaaahahaaaa”
