TIGA wants Government help
UK trade magazine MCV is today reporting a call from developer's trade body TIGA for the British government to aid UK games development in a similar scheme to the four-million Euro fund set-aside by the French government. The money will be awarded to the French developers judged most worthy, and will assist the lucky start-up with getting their product onto the marketplace.
As well as promoting such a scheme for UK companies, TIGA are in discussions with the Department of Trade and Industry, organising possible tax credits for developer's involved in research and development. A formal submission on this matter will apparently be submitted by October. Fingers crossed that all this will come to fruition and prove a helping hand to fledgling UK game developers.
