UK Games Fund - Fourth Round Open to Applications

Funding to support UK video games development, aimed at helping smaller companies get concepts off the drawing board and into production, thereby helping to maximise the contribution to the country’s economic growth which this sector delivers.

The UK Games Fund is intended to support UK video games development. Aimed at helping smaller companies get concepts off the drawing board and into production, the Fund will provide additional support to the video games sector, helping to maximise the contribution to economic growth this sector is already delivering.

The Fund will offer grants to support video games projects, as well as creating jobs, nurturing talent and furthering the growth of games clusters all around the UK.

The programme has an overall budget of £4 million. Under the current round, grants of up to £25,000 are available.

The money can be used to help games development businesses create working prototype games and raise the private investment necessary to see a concept turned into a finished product.

For the current round of funding the provider will normally only accept applications from UK registered, active games development companies.

The fourth call for applications is now open. The deadline for receipt of applications is noon on Monday 12 February 2018.
