“All creative practitioners are judged by their portfolio and how they can account for it. Tranzfuser will provide this year’s participants with an end-to-end project with commercial deadlines. We know that employers value such experience from a careers perspective and publishers explore that when evaluating potential new IPs. We’re also lucky in being able to tap into the expertise resident in over 100 small studios that we’ve funded through the UK Games Fund. This community are really keen to give back time to the sector and will help us support the Tranzfuser teams this year.”
Successful applicants will be awarded a cash prize paid in stages to replicate the real world of games development. At the showcase event later this year teams will be invited to pitch for follow-on funding of up to £20k from the UK Games Fund (also operated by UKGTF) to commercialise their game and launch a company.
With the competition now nearly at the half way point, teams were fully equipped to fairly rate their Hubs. The winner will be decided by the UK Games Talent and Finance team.
“Our cohort of Local Hubs for this year’s competition is yet again a geographically diverse network of enthusiastic and supportive centres for our teams to work with.”
“Our network of Local Hubs for this year’s competition is the broadest spread across the UK we’ve seen to date. Talented teams of graduate games developers are in the unique position of working with and benefiting from the wealth of expertise at each of the Local Hubs. Every year the bar is raised by the teams and we’re anticipating Tranzfuser 2018 to be another outstanding year.”
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.
