“With 235 applications, there was unprecedented demand for our funding in this round so these successful applicants really do represent the best of the UK’s emergent games development talent. Now that the success stories from our first round are just beginning to emerge, we’re expecting to see a similar level of success from these projects.”
“The UKGT website offers the UK games development community an open door to connect to our talent initiatives, regardless if they are a rookie games developer or industry veteran.”
“Tranzfuser is a fantastic opportunity offering graduates the ability to take their first steps post-university. For us personally, it means we can potentially set up our own independent company, something we aspire to do.”
“Working with Tranzfuser has further reinforced what we have been working to demonstrate; the continued growth of a vibrant and passionate community of game development talent in Cornwall and the South Western region of the UK.”
“The network of Regional Hubs we’ve so far established is highly motivated to provide the best base for Tranzfuser participants across the UK. All are leading names in talent development, we’re delighted to have them join us in Tranzfuser.”
“The way in which Tranzfuser will become a fresh talent pipeline for the UK Games Fund is a real first.”
“I hope this Fund will give them the boost and extra support they need and urge other games companies and developers to apply for funding.” Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy
The UK Games Fund team will be hitting the road again in the next few weeks as we plan application workshops for games developers who are considering applying to the Fund. Dates and venues are soon to be announced so be sure to check back with us soon.
This is a fantastic opportunity to engage with universities, students and industry bodies to cultivate and showcase the high levels of games development talent we have in the UK.
