Eleven new companies join the UK Games Fund community

“It’s marvellous to see grants awarded to companies that reflect such strength and diversity in the video games sector across the UK. The UK Games Fund has a proven track record of supporting innovative early stage games development, and I look forward to seeing these teams realise their creative potential.”

SMAC Games have produced a brilliant cyberpunk adventure that we’re sure will be a big hit and an important asset to the company’s future growth.”
