Jack David, co-founder and artist said “It’s a big day for us at aPriori as we’ve been working on bringing this game to life since 2013 – initially switching from XNA to Unity in order to bring the game to Nintendo Wii U, and ultimately Switch. It’s been a long journey, but we’re finally able to give this to our community.”

Jonathan Price, co-founder and designer added “More recently we became determined to bring this to the Nintendo Switch because we love the portability and think it’s perfect for the multiplayer experience that we’ve created in Aperion Cyberstorm across all five game modes.”

About aPriori Digital

Founded in 2013 aPriori Digital is a computer game development studio, based in Bristol, United Kingdom. After initially meeting at the University of the West of England the team won funding from Creative England to create a studio with a passion for fast paced multiplayer experiences for all major consoles and PC.

During the lifetime of the project, we have revised the release date more times than we would like. The reason for doing so is that we understand that the game may not make back its development costs, which is a reality that a lot of studios face, but we want to make a game we could be proud of, a complete experience with a rich feature set that can be played years from now by a variety of people of different abilities.
