.Dublin game company wins award for Sumo

THE DUBLIN game company behind Sumo has been recognised by the UN-based World Summit Awards.

OmniMotion Technology and Dublin Digital Services has made it to the world's top 40 outstanding e-content providers.

Sumo was selected from more than 460 projects and 105 countries by a jury of ICT experts in Hong Kong.

The game works through any recent model PC/Mac, tablet, mobile or device with a webcam or camera.

Using body movement and a computer's webcam, players can guide their Sumo character through Sumo school before taking on a host of enemies in survival quests and challenges.

It is among the first games in the world to use both intuitive, multi-touch controls, and next-generation "bump-map" graphics, offering near-console standard visuals, the awards said.
