“Having had the privilege to watch the teams grow from applicants to the competition just a few months ago to now being in a position to pitch as games development studios seeking investment for the commercialisation of their projects, I’m delighted with the standard of work produced by this year’s Tranzfuser.”
“Even newcomers are treated like peers and it is great to be part of a community that is so welcoming. I played a few DMA Design and Rockstar titles growing up and it’s crazy to think the guys that made Lemmings and GTA have had input to our game.”
“Don’t worry about what anyone is else is doing – just focus on your craft, observe people, observe the world ad don’t be scared to confront your limitations too.”
“I think what we are doing is amazing all the time. I’m only 22 and when I tell people I run a games studio, the look on people’s faces re-asserts in my mind that what we are doing is amazing!”
With only two months now to go until the Tranzfuser 2017 showcase at EGX, excitement is now building. We’re looking forward to discovering what awaits the best of the UK’s games development talent.
“Having all teams together today in the heart of the one of UK’s central media hub is a highlight of this year’s competition.”
The UK’s creative industries are one of our biggest success stories and a big part of that is our leadership in video game production. Now we need to nurture the next generation of talent, and the Government’s UK Games Fund and Tranzfuser have been set up to do exactly this. I wish all the entrants good luck in the competition and look forward to seeing the prototypes as they develop.
