Elaine Green, Director of Nellyvision said:
“With TIGA's support we believe we can build strong foundations for our brand. We straddle the divide between 'media' and 'games', so it's often easy to lose touch with the games side of things, joining TIGA will help us strengthen in the games sector while continuing our digital media and arts work.”
Dr Richard Wilson, TIGA CEO, said:
“In recent years TIGA’s membership has grown to embrace a wide range of games developers and digital businesses and we are really pleased to welcome Nellyvision to TIGA. At TIGA we are working to make the UK the best place in the world to do games business. By bringing games developers and digital media businesses together we are disseminating knowledge and fostering new business opportunities for all of our members.
