Design in Action (DiA) is delighted to host local games studio A Fox Wot I Drew at an exclusive launch event for their first mobile game BAUM at the University of Dundee’s Dalhousie Building from 10am on Friday 22nd January.

BAUM, an enchanting, highly-addictive 2D platform game that requires the player to move a droplet of water around a magical forest by drawing a gust of wind with their finger, has been supported to market by the University of Dundee’s Design in Action project along with Abertay University. With inspiration from Sonic the Hedgehog and Gustav Klimt’s mural ‘The Tree of Life’, amongst others, it is due to launch on the Apple App Store on Thursday 21st January and will be available in 12 languages.
