Game Insight supports 3D printing via Toyze

Following the lead of characters such as Talking Tom, Pou and Cut the Rope's Om Nom, Game Insight has signed up to 3D printing outfit Toyze.

Characters from three of its games - The Tribez, Dragon Eternity and Mirrors of Albion - will become available to be customised in-app and 3D printed.

The first title to go live with the technology will be The Tribez, which is an interesting choice because as a resource-focused game, its characters are task-based.

Nevertheless, players will be able to use Toyze to customise male and female versions of its worker, settler, magician, farmer, woodcutter and builder units.

Both Toyze and Game Insight are based in Vilnius, Lithuania, with Toyze saying that its platform has been used to create over 500,000 models to-date.

This total also includes those users who have customised and shared characters digitally via on social media from within the Toyze app, however.

The option to print physical characters is only available from within each game, as each developer integrates Toyze's 3D editor.
