Words from our community

With 6 years under our belts, we now have a sizeable engaged communtiy of Tranzfuser alumni. What would they say to future participants?

If you’re keen to put your skills to the test, Tranzfuser is a great platform to find out where you can shine in the games industry. I know a lot of people who are now running their own studios or have joined big developers to bring their skills to AAA titles.

If you want to know what it’s like to be a studio or make an independent title, I would strongly advise you to jump at this opportunity. We picked up so many great lessons during our journey through Tranzfuser which have aided us throughout our last two years in business as an indie studio.

Tranzfuser is the best opportunity available for new and recent graduates to try their hand at becoming a part of the games industry. Even if you don’t get the further funding, you walk away with a huge amount of experience, a much larger network, and the ability to break into the industry at a much higher level, and it doesn’t cost you anything because you get funding!
