Indie Games Dev Wins £25,000 Funding

Triple B Games, the developers behind College Lacrosse 2011 and Zombies 8 My Cookies have been awarded £25,000 as part of an initiative from Abertay University.

As well as the money, they’ll also get access to a “talent pool” of students and graduates.

Speaking on the university’s website, Paul Durrant, Director of Business Development at Abertay University, said: “There has been a very high level of interest in the Prototype Fund and the project has already been cited as an excellent example of targeted support in the recent Scottish Affairs Committee report on the games industry.

“As well as allowing young companies the opportunity to develop a working prototype to secure further investment, the fund will also provide a fantastic opportunity for students and graduates to develop their skills by working on the successful projects.”

The Abertay University Prototype Fund is financially backed by three partners: the European Regional Development Fund, the UK Government and Abertay University.

The fund is based at Abertay University and is open to applications from new and young small and medium-sized enterprises across Britain. The second round of funding ends on 29th April.
