The UK’s creative industries are one of our biggest success stories and a big part of that is our leadership in video game production. Now we need to nurture the next generation of talent, and the Government’s UK Games Fund and Tranzfuser have been set up to do exactly this. I wish all the entrants good luck in the competition and look forward to seeing the prototypes as they develop.
After revealing the toy in 2016 to impressed industry insiders, SwapBots won financial support from UK Games Fund during the summer. Now the public will get their first chance to try SwapBots from March 1st as the Kickstarter campaign launches at GDC San Francisco and beta test toys are distributed to hundreds of eager players.
“Becoming a reviewer for either of these projects is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the UK games development community.”
“SGX is one example of the extraordinary advances in audio-driven animation and motion technology under development by Speech Graphics and early stage funding schemes such as prototype funding can help the company broaden its portfolio of products”
The recent Application Support webinars have proven to be extremely popular with over 100 participants from across the UK joining the sessions.
“Our UK Games Fund has already helped many young games companies turn prototypes into a reality. Together with the Government’s video games tax reliefs this shows how we’re supporting this dynamic sector to attract further investment and new talent.”
