Screen Queensland has announced more than $180,000 in funding to be invested into the development of five Queensland games via the SQ Game Development and Marketing Investment program.
The five teams include early career and established developers as well as diverse recipients. The development teams involved in the inaugural round of funding are 5 Lives Studios, Witch Beam, Artefact Assembly, Subtle Boom, and Alex Butterfield.
Screen Queensland’s inaugural games funding recipients have achieved significant success to-date and are estimated to have injected more than $1.5 million into the local economy.
“Queensland boasts a competitive and healthy games industry and our local games developers are being recognised as being some of the strongest and most compelling creators not only in Australia but also in the international games community,” said Screen Queensland CEO Tracey Vieira.
