White Paper Games, a Manchester based Indie developer of five has obtained up to £25K of grant funding to develop their two part PC adventure game, ETHER.

“We are thrilled to have obtained backing from the Prototype Fund which has already allowed us to focus our core efforts on creating a narratively challenging and immersive adventure game for the PC. The funding has also given us the push to move into a new studio space that is designed specifically for creative industries . Being in a single location really allows us as developers to work in harmony to deliver the best game that we possibly can. ” – Benjamin Hill, Creative Director, White Paper Games Ltd.
