UK funding initiative looks to bring more graduates into game development

The UK government has joined forces with UK Games Talent and Finance CIC to launch Tranzfuser; a new programme designed to help graduates break into game development.

The UK government has joined forces with UK Games Talent and Finance CIC to launch Tranzfuser; a new program designed to help graduates break into game development.

Tranzfuser will look to do that by giving successful applicants the opportunity to win up to £30,000 ($43,000) in funding from the UK Games Fund. 

Those accepted onto the program will be given £5,000 ($7,000) to develop their ideas into working prototypes this summer in a competition that will culminate in a national showcase event. 

Candidates who make it to the national showcase will then have the chance to pitch for up to £25,000 ($36,000) in extra funding to help them commercialize their game and launch a company. 

Participants will be given access to Regional Hubs across the UK, and will also receive industry support wherever possible.

“I’m delighted to have realized a long-time ambition of joining up early-stage talent recognition and showcasing with prototype funding” said Tranzfuser founder, Paul Durrant.

Anyone interested in the program can find out more on the official Tranzfuser website.
