|The Queensland Government, through Screen Queensland, investing in GAME DEVELOPERS
The Queensland Government through Screen Queensland (SQ), is supporting the development of seven (7) Queensland games with an investment of $397,218 via the inaugural SQ Game Development and Marketing Investment initiative.
SQ received an overwhelmingly large response from local industry to the first round of the new Game Development and Marketing Investment initiative with over $1.5 million requested from competitive applications.
Queensland is home to a healthy games industry and this new initiative has been designed to support local developers in creating and marketing high-quality games capable of engaging a local and international player base and achieving commercial success.
All funding is to be matched by the recipients in the form of cash, in-kind or other funding sources.

> Trick Shot Development’s Sky Squadron
> Cog Studio’s Nightmare VR
> Affable Games’ Speaking Simulator
