Video Games Prototype Fund

UK Games Fund

What does it do?

Aimed at helping smaller companies get concepts off the drawing board and into production, the fund will provide additional support to the sector which has already given the world global blockbusters like Tomb Raider, Little Big Planet, Runescape, Monument Valley and Batman: Arkham Knight.

What will the benefits be for me?
• Grants of up to £25,000 to help new and young games development businesses create working prototype games.
• Grants of up to £50,000 for a limited number of projects to take their ideas beyond the prototype phase.
• Talent development initiatives - this 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.
How do I access the service?

Grants will be provided to eligible companies with project plans where we think that the team and title combination has potential and can benefit from our support. You will be required to apply online answering a number of key questions and providing full company details and associated data.
