Marvelous for Games Academy grads


A group of game developers who launched an independent game development studio following their studies at Falmouth University’s Games Academy have secured a new deal with Europe’s Marvelous Europe to release their new game ‘Leximan’.

This is the latest success for the trio who have already caught the attention of industry big hitters following funding from Transfuzer for their post-apocalyptic game Rustbreaker.

Knights of Borria is an award-winning UK-based studio founded in 2020. Formed by three Falmouth University graduates, Knights of Borria aim to create “soulful, fun, and outright weird” games.

With the support of Marvelous Europe, Knights of Borria’s Chris Jones, Max Amaden, Jake Whittaker have recently launched a sneak peek of Leximan, a wholesome narrative-adventure in a surprising modern-fantasy world, driven by “bizarre characters, mystical word puzzles and hilarious minigames”.

Jones said: “This is one of the biggest steps forward on our career path in the industry that we’ve had so far. I definitely see that Cornwall will have a huge role to play in the future of the games industry. With the Games Academy producing such talented graduates and promising games companies like Ludophoria, Amber Bear and Studio 316 enriching the scene, we can’t wait to see what comes next.”
