Two game companies, Isometric Dreams (Spooky Doorway) and Gambrinous have received a total of €300,000 for the development of new Video Game projects in the latest round of Creative Europe MEDIA funding.
The Creative Europe Media video game development scheme is for companies who have produced at least one recently published video game and who wish to invest in the development of a new video game concept or prototype. It supports European video games companies with proven experience who want to develop up to an alpha or beta version of a narrative-led video game.
A list of previous video game winners from Storytoys in 2013 through to Simteractive in 2017 and the latest winners can be found at https://www.creativeeuropeireland.eu/media/projects/funding-recipients alongside all the other Irish film and other winners.
These latest results bring to €12,231,201 the amount awarded to Irish audiovisual and games companies since the Creative Europe Programme commenced in 2014. The next calls for funding will be in 2021.
Well done everyone.
