"Whilst we can’t guarantee that taking part in the Employment will see you get that interview, having Jamfuser in your back pocket will no doubt help you get your foot in the door in a way you otherwise may not.”
The Enterprise Pathway will support professional development as a studio, with pitching skills being refined and put into practice at virtual pitching sessions. Teams will be invited to showcase their games at the annual public-facing ProtoPlay event, where they will also pitch to the UK Games Fund for grant support of up to £20,000 for the further commercial development of their project.
As teams work on real world projects during Tranzfuser, as a participant you will develop and hone all important game development skills, working as part of a team (or lead it). The competition will provide you with a platform to start your own video game business should that be your goal.
"What a journey to get this far and finally get selected! Tranzfuser has constantly pushed us to think not just as game creators and designers but also as founders, giving us the confidence to make our outcome better and recognise the audience for it.
"Having been selected for the funding is a massive honour - one which gives us the recognition and acknowledgement that allows us to keep moving forward, refine the prototype further and take us to the next stages. A very exciting year ahead for Wordplay!"
"I always love seeing what comes out of Tranzfuser because it gives upcoming talent the opportunity to make something really creative, and is always a promising hint of what the future of the UK games industry could be. I was especially impressed by this year's teams, who managed to do all of that amidst circumstances no other cohort has faced."
