Tranzfuser, the innovative new talent development programme from UK Games Talent and Finance CIC and funded by the UK government.
Deadline for applications is 15th April 2016
Designed to provide a platform for creative leaders of the future, Tranzfuser is aimed at graduates looking to break into the games development industry, with a strong focus on getting their game to market.
Lead applicants to Tranzfuser have an opportunity to project manage the teams that they form for the Tranzfuser journey and win funds from the UK Games Fund. Successful applicants will be invited to develop their ideas into working prototypes over the summer in a competition that culminates in a nationally recognized showcase event. Participants will have access to Regional Hubs and leading industry support where possible, providing the best knowledge-base and resources available across the UK.
Successful applicants will be awarded a £5,000 budget to allocate as they choose throughout the competition. At the showcase event in September 2016, selected teams will be invited to pitch for follow-on funding of up to £25k from the UK Games Fund to commercialise their game and launch a company.
