Coolson’s Artisanal Chocolate Alphabet

20 November 2013 - Things Made Out Of Other Things is delighted to announce that their debut game, Coolson’s Artisanal Chocolate Alphabet, has been awarded Best Game 2013 by BAFTA Scotland. The Edinburgh-based husband-and-wife team accepted the award among Scotland's film and television elite at a star-studded gala in Glasgow on 17 November.

Coolson’s Artisanal Chocolate Alphabet is a whimsical, hand-illustrated word game for iPad. It places the player in a chocolate factory run by a judgemental penguin, packing letter-embossed chocolates into increasingly complex crossword-shaped boxes. Released in June 2013, it has steadily received critical acclaim and is currently featured on Apple’s official iPad Air and iPad mini websites.



Hipper and quirkier than a Ferris Bueller cosplayer riding a unicycle down Shoreditch High Street.


A word game that has won me over with a charming narrative, wonderful sense of style and an abundance of whimsy.


The lovely soundtrack and the hand-drawn animations are fanciful and very sweet.

One of the sweetest and most charming games we’ve come across in a long time.
