MDA encouraging game development with $50,000

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 23, 2008

Game developers dreaming of creating the next Halo or Grand Theft Auto game can now turn to a more generous government grant to get them off the ground.

They can now get up to $50,000 each to get their games marketed to big publishers and sold to gamers worldwide.

This is part of the Invigorate scheme that the Media Development Authority (MDA) runs yearly to identify and help promising local developers.

This year, it will fund up to 10 developers which can come up with games that are ‘cross-platform’. In other words, these games can be played on the PC, game console and mobile phone. (story)
