New Grants for Rising Star Developers


New grants for rising star developers to help turn video game ideas into smash hits.

The UK Games Fund will receive an extra £5m of government funding via scale-up grants. Studios and developers can apply for grants to help get games under development ready for market. The fund will also continue awarding grants of up to £30,000 to young developers and early-stage studios to turn their drawing board ideas into working prototypes.

From today, companies can apply for the new funding which is dedicated to getting games in development ready for market. The expanded fund will also help to attract even more private investment into this world leading industry - and compound the total government investment into the fund which now stands at £13.4m from 2022-25

Alongside the new Content Fund, UKGF will continue awarding grants up to £30,000 to young video game developers and early-stage studios to turn their drawing board ideas into working prototype games and showcase them to investors. UKGF also supports graduate talent development through its DunDev and Tranzfuser programmes.
