The number and quality of applications to the latest round of the UK Games Fund, including the new Pitch Development Programme offering, has once again been high.
“With a proven track record in supporting early stage games development, I hope this new round of the UK Games Fund can help nurture more blockbuster British video games.”
“Becoming a reviewer for either of these projects is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the UK games development community.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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 high level of response to our second round of applications clearly reflects the shifting scale and nature of the sector.”
These sessions are designed for both existing companies and fresh start-ups with a strong intention to submit an application to the present round.
“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
