The Astro Knights will embark on their bid for stock market domination this week, writes Clare Francis . Synthetic Dimension, the Stourbridge-based animation company which created the computer game Astro Knights , is to float on the unregulated Ofex market for an estimated £1.5m.

Synthetic Dimension, founded in 1985 as a computer graphics design company, has since expanded into computer games and interactive media, video production and computer modelling, internet development, corporate ID and marketing.

As well as Astro Knights , the company is well known for its PC and Playstation game, Ed Hunter , which it was commissioned to develop by the heavy metal band Iron Maiden.

The company is also the inventor of Syndimation, a 3D technology used by Walt Disney in the films A Bug's Life and Toy Story II.
