“The UK is a world leader when it comes to making video games, and we’re determined to make sure this continues long into the future,” said the Minister of State for Digital and Culture Matt Hancock.

“Our UK Games Fund has already helped many young games companies turn prototypes into a reality. Together with the Government’s video games tax reliefs this shows how we’re supporting this dynamic sector to attract further investment and new talent.”

UKIE CEO Jo Twist added: “The UK is home to some of the world’s best and brightest creative games talent, and support from the UK Games Fund has already helped many projects get a much needed boost towards development and funding.

"The fantastic games that have already emerged from previous rounds shows what a huge asset this fund is to the games sector in the UK, and UKIE is proud to continue supporting the project through this next round.”
