Train2Game F1 Manager Supporting Men’s Health

Leading mobile games developer, Hutch, has today announced a partnership with leading men’s health charity, Movember, to support with the innovative work it does to encourage men to talk about their mental health.
 
The partnership, which runs between 4th-8th November, will introduce Movember into its popular game, F1 Manager, during a special in-game event. Players can unlock in-game rewards in the form of special Grand Prix crates, with a large portion of the revenue earned being donated to Movember’s annual funding push. 
 
Six members of the team, including CEO Shaun Rutland, have decided they are due for a trim, and have pledged to shave off their facial hair and grow a moustache for Movember. Players and friends of Hutch are encouraged to take part and share their progress with Hutch’s social channels. 

Not only that, but players will also get the chance to vote in a knock-out-poll to decide which driver had the best moustache in F1 history. Players can also download a limited edition F1 Manager X Movember Instagram filter to show their support on social media and wear a uniquely themed racing helmet for all to see.  

Shaun Rutland, Hutch CEO, said: “Movember is a wonderful cause and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to support them on their drive to help men around the world. 2020 has been yet another reminder of the indefinable value of our physical and mental health, so we are proud to be working with such a dedicated and motivated team. We’re excited to be doing our bit, and hope our community joins us to help a worthy cause”

Train2Game News: GallantCloud blog – Week 12

Gallant CloudThis is officially the last week on the Microsoft Accelerator Program. Can’t believe that it is almost over already. The demo day is coming fast as it is scheduled for the next week. We have made some great friends over the last 12 weeks. It is quite a shame that it is over soon.

We had the German State Minister of Economics Affairs (Labour and Transport) Olaf Lies in the office this week and he was quite impressed with our game. He left a delicious traditional ‘Baumkuchen’ cake for the whole Microsoft Accelerator program. A great treat for the start of the week I would say.

The last Pitching Doctor session this week was located at the L39 boardroom in Canary Wharf. It was an amazing location to practice our pitch and soaking up the banking and start-up atmosphere. Practice makes perfect as we know and refining our pitch after every presentation and genuine feedback really makes a difference.

Later that evening we had some great Wine tasting and talk by Naked Wines and our office farewell toast with Pizza.

Next day it was time for two more pitching rounds in front of ‘friendly investors’ and we got some good feedback from them too. This is all very encouraging as it seems we are on the right track with our game and pitch.

As it is still November we formed a team at the begin of the month for ‘Movember’ and raised some money from people in the Co-working office. Growing a moustache for a whole month is quite a high maintenance as well. Also it makes you feel like a cool dude, but the people around you look suspiciously at us and very likely to make some funny comments. I think I heard them all by now, but I am strong and resist the temptation to shave the fur off between my nose and lips. One of our team members actually was getting rid of his one, so we had to give him a fake moustache for a while. It was all great fun!

The final day at the Accelerator arrived and we making best us of it by polishing our game and doing more pitching practice for another event in front of hundreds of people.

The last week has past so quickly, it is unreal. One more week to go before the demo day.
It is going to be a crazy week ahead!
