Last week, a study by games industry trade body TIGA, found the Scottish games industry had grown by a massive 27% in 2017. With 1,540 working directly in game development and 2,814 working for companies that indirectly support the industry, this makes a grand total of just over 4300 games professionals working in Scotland.
