£125k Pot for Games Innovation

I got an email today from Nisha, from the Government! But it’s ok, all those VPNs and Tor networks have paid off, and it was only good news!

IC tomorrow, which is a “Technology Strategy Board programme that stimulates innovation and economic growth in the digital sector” and who don’t capitalise the “tomorrow” part of their name, have launched a Digital Innovation Contest, in the subcategory of Games. There are five awards of £25k each for 5 different innovative games. The contest is sponsored by the likes of Sony, Crytek, Google and Intel and each have set a different brief within which you need to bust out your innovation.

In order to grab that cash you need to submit an application in the category of your choice by the 16th October, and there is a briefing event in London on the 19th September. This is going to be streamed online too if you can’t make it in person. As well as the money you get to keep all the IP from any game you end up making, and the website says you don’t need to be an established studio to apply. It all sounds quite promising.
