“Competing in the Tranzfuser programme was for sure the best thing I could’ve done for my career as a graduate.”
With only two months now to go until the Tranzfuser 2017 showcase at EGX, excitement is now building. We’re looking forward to discovering what awaits the best of the UK’s games development talent.
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.”
“The UK Games Fund is an excellent example of how the UK Government is investing in the future of world class games development in Scotland and across the UK.”
“Cardboard Sword’s success with Epic demonstrates the complementary of our funding with Epic’s excellent Developer Grant initiative and is a credit to Cardboard Sword’s development approach. It’s also good to see this snapshot of the connected nature of the UK games ecosystem through the founders’ connections to other companies supported with prototype funding”
“We’re delighted how many of the projects we’ve supported have already translated into success. This demonstrates how the modest levels of funding we can provide can lead to significant impacts that will benefit the whole UK games development ecosystem”
“The invaluable support from the Fund was crucial in us getting to a solid prototype and passing due-diligence by making key technical hires.”
“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.”
