Dundee-based game development studio Denki has released its latest casual title for TV, based on the popular TV quiz show, Golden Balls.

The game is now available in the UK through Sky's interactive TV games service, which every Sky customer can access using their Sky remote control.

Golden Balls has been reinterpreted and built specifically to recreate the popular televison game show within the tight constraints of digital interactive television. The design and development was completed by Denki's External Development Department (EDD).

The release of Golden Balls brings EDD's total releases for DiTV in 2008 to 17 games, while the department has designed, created and released more than 170 games over the last eight years.

The market for DiTV games is growing worldwide. Sky has 8,980,000 subscribers in the UK and Ireland and a growing number of interactive services - including games - which every customer can access through their set top box and Sky remote control.

"The digital interactive television market is one which is often overlooked by the mainstream gaming industry, yet it offers significant benefits to developers, brand owners and gamers alike," said Colin Anderson, MD of Denki.
