Since launching four years ago, the UK Games Fund has now run five rounds of funding and has supported over 100 companies. Each round has been adapted to better suit the applicants with our offering; from straight forward grants of £25,000 initially to the initial £5,000 award now part of Round 5.
“Over the past three years Tranzfuser has been identifying and supporting the UK’s next top video game developers to turn their original and innovative ideas into a reality. Congratulations to Mujo Games and all the teams from Tranzfuser 2018.”
“We’re delighted to once again partner with the organisers of EGX, Gamer Network, to help our teams access the gaming public en masse at the UK’s leading video games show. Our experience of taking teams to Birmingham over the past few years has shown us how valued the talent of small indie teams to the UK video games sector. The opportunity of showcasing their projects to the thousands of enthusiastic attendees is incomparable to anything else we could offer our teams.”
“Since we won the competition Mochi Mode has come on leaps and bounds. We’ve continued work on our first game Moo Moo Move and are nearing its completion – we’re talking with a publisher to set a release date in the near future.”
“Having had the privilege to watch the teams grow from applicants to the competition just a few months ago to now being in a position to pitch as games development studios seeking investment for the commercialisation of their projects, I’m delighted with the standard of work produced by this year’s Tranzfuser.”
“Even newcomers are treated like peers and it is great to be part of a community that is so welcoming. I played a few DMA Design and Rockstar titles growing up and it’s crazy to think the guys that made Lemmings and GTA have had input to our game.”
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.
