It’s been a fantastic start to February here at Tag Games, as we announce that we are among the first companies to win support from the UK Games Fund.
The UK Games Fund is a government-sponsored initiative aimed at supporting growth in the UK games industry. Through funding, the UK Games Fund encourages developers to build new IP, innovate, expand and grow. Studios that submit successful proposals receive a grant of up to £25,000 for an initial game prototype, with potential for additional funding should the project go beyond this stage.
The initiative covers the whole spectrum of the game development industry, from grassroots studios and indie start-ups to established and acclaimed developers like Tag. Tag MD Paul Farley summed up our excitement by saying: “We are delighted to receive support from the UK Games Fund. This investment in an innovative game prototype offers a rare opportunity to develop the new game mechanics and disruptive business models we hope will deliver continuing growth, both for Tag as a studio and for the wider UK game industry.”
Our whole team are delighted with the news that our proposal has been approved and we can’t wait to get to work on delivering incredible new gaming experiences to mobile and tablet platforms.
