Cheatwell Games’ pre-school game Tell-a-Tale Pirate has scooped the Gold medal accolade for Best Literacy Game in this year’s Imagination Gaming Awards.
The firm revealed the news on its Facebook page, where its ‘crew of hearty pirates’ thanked everyone behind the awards.
The firm stated: “So from our crew of hearty pirates we’d like to say a massive thank you to the team at Imagination Gaming – we’re so pleased that you saw how much fun it is making up stories about pirates to improve literacy and that you can start doing it from as young as three with our Tell-a-Tale Storytelling Game."
The game, which is designed to improve kids’ literacy skills, is also available in farmyard and fairytale editions for £14.99.
Mark Jones, head of UK sales at Cheatwell Games, added: “We knew when our new product development team showed us this line that it was a fabulous pre-school product. There are some exceptional story telling games already available, but Tell-a-Tale offers a little bit of structure to younger children – a bit like stabilisers on a bike.
“Winning this award really reinforces our decision – the team at Imagination Gaming do a fantastic job taking educational games into schools and after school clubs, so to get such an endorsement from them is praise indeed.”
