Guto Nyth Brân is a Welsh second language app and online resource for teachers and pupils (5-11 years old) that will develop Welsh language skills in an interesting and fun-filled way. The game is based on the story of Guto Nyth Brân, a legendary 18th century athlete from the Pontypridd area.

The game was developed in association with The Welsh Government, Welsh language specialists, Red Ninja developers and the pupils and teachers of:

Ysgol Maelgwn, Llandudno Junction, Woodlands Community Primary School, Cwmbrân and Trowbridge Primary School, Cardiff.
