UK government will provide creators with grants of up to £50,000 to support the development of projects and growth of studios

Titan Souls and Frozen Synapse creators among second wave of UK Games Fund recipients

The UK government has announced the 23 British developers awarded in its second round of UK Games Fund winners.

The Fund is a four-year initiative to support the UK development community, and provides recipients with grants of up to £50,000 to bring their game projects to market and grow their studios.

“Our video games industry is world-renowned, but we know that many small businesses sometimes lack the capital to help develop their ideas and attract private investment,” said minister for culture and the digital economy Ed Vaizey, who helps lead the fund. “Our fund is helping bridge that gap and help developers take their ideas from the drawing board and into production.”

235 creators applied for the second wave of funding, with 23 businesses from across Britain eventually being successful. Among them are Titan Souls developer Acid Nerve and Frozen Synapse outlet Mode 7.
