Entrepreneurs and businesses in South Australia’s burgeoning game development sector are set to benefit from a new strategy designed to support the creation of high quality digital games, and position South Australia as a national leader in the growing industry.
This includes a new $1.55 million grant program, which will help game developers produce globally competitive content, execute marketing plans for their games in target markets, and create original, South Australian-owned intellectual property.
Grant funding will be available across three categories:
- Grants from $15,000 up to $50,000 to employ additional staff with specialist skills, acquire hardware or software, or cover other genuine production-associated costs for creating new content. Production grants must be matched on a 2:1 basis.
- Grants from $5,000 up to $15,000 to develop and execute marketing plans for games in target markets.
- Grants of up to $20,000 for game developers to attend conferences and speaker events and to grow their industry capability through training, scholarships, mentorships and event sponsorship. Game developers can also access Game Plus - a game development co-working space on Pirie Street - which provides a hub for digital entrepreneurs to co-locate and share knowledge, resources and opportunities.
