Organisers of the Nordic Game Program revealed today that the Swedish program has been approved to run for at least another four years, with the next launching on January 1, 2012. The Council of Ministers for Cultural Cooperation approved the plans by Nordic Game Resources -- the administrators of the program from 2006 to 2011 -- to continue with the support program for the Nordic industry, with a total budget of DKK 26 million ($4.75 million) suggested for the four year duration. The program will receive DKK 9 million ($1.64 million) in funding during 2012, with this value decreasing each year up until concluding in 2015 with DKK 4 million ($730,420) in funding. Nordic Game Resources is looking to support new game projects in the region, while holding the Nordic Game conference in Malmo, Sweden to further involvement from regional organisations in the industry. "We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to propose a continuation of our work," said Erik Robertson, chief executive at Nordic Game Resources. "We feel a great responsibility not only for the current and the future program, but also of course for our staff, the Nordic game developers and for everyone else for whom our activities are important, now and in the future."
