CREATIVE EUROPE VIDEO GAME DEVELOPMENT FUNDING – DEADLINE 02 MARCH 2017
This annual funding call, which is now open, offers funding for Video Game companies from €10,000 to €150,000 for concept and project development. Previous recipients from Ireland include Story Toys and Tribal City Interactive.
- A video games company can apply if they are registered for at least 12 months and have produced a game with a strong narrative structure, which has been commercially distributed since the beginning of 2013.
- The type of games that Creative Europe is looking to fund are narrative storytelling video games regardless of platform or expected distribution method.
- The story must be told or shown throughout the whole game (in-game storytelling) and not only as an introduction or an ending to the game. In all cases the video game must be intended for commercial exploitation.
Deadline: 11am (Irish time), 02 March 2017.
