Creative developers and start-up studios are invited to bid for a share of £5 million in government funding to turn their new video game ideas into market leaders.
The UK Games Fund (UKGF) Content Fund will provide UK games studios with grants of between £50,000 and £150,000 to support games in development and ready them for market.
The funding, which will be available over the next 18 months, will support the development of intellectual property, allowing companies to attract investment and reach their next stage of growth.
Eligible costs include staff and contractor costs for hands-on development activity.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
The fund may close periodically, therefore early applications are recommended.
