London, November 2011
BAFTA-nominated indie studio Size Five has taken it up a notch by winning a BAFTA for controversial Sex Ed Shoot-‘em-Up ‘Privates’ at a glitzy award ceremony jam packed with celebrities and champagne.
“It’s a complete honour and a total shock,” Size Five’s Dan Marshall proudly exclaimed. “I was excited enough about being able to start all my Press Releases from now on with the words ‘BAFTA-nominated’, but winning one is a whole other level.”
“I can’t thank BAFTA enough for honouring a tiny studio who made a weird little game. It was a great night, and I’m brimming with pride. To stagger home with one of those oh-so-familiar shiny metal face awards is so surreal, and completely magical."
Privates is a platform twin-stick shooter in which you lead a teeny-tiny gang of condom-hatted marines as they delve into peoples’ vaginas and bottoms and blast away at all manner of oozy, shouty monsters. It’s rude, funny, bitingly satirical and technically pretty accurate if you don’t count the tiny people or the germs with teeth. Last year it won Best Game at the BIMA awards.
