£4 Million Fund for Video Game Development (UK)

The government has launched a £4 million fund for the UK’s video games industry.

Aimed at helping smaller companies move concepts into production, from 2015 to 2019 the Video Games Prototype Fund will offer grants of up to £25,000 to support video games projects, as well as creating jobs, nurturing talent and furthering the growth of games clusters all around the UK. Grants of up to £50,000 will also be available for a limited number of projects to take their ideas beyond the prototype phase. It will also fund talent development initiatives, which will include competitions for students and graduate teams to create and showcase new games, mentoring for businesses and individuals, and opportunities for talented individuals to work on games prototype projects.

The first call for applications will be issued soon. Read more at: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/4m-fund-to-kick-start-the-next-tomb-raider
