Annual initiative seeking narrative-led video games holding free London workshop tomorrow

Creative Europe offering grants of up to €150,000

Creative Europe, a programme designed to support and encourage the creative industries across the continent, is offering game developers the chance to secure grants of up to €150,000.

The initiative is open to all European games companies, particularly those that have been operating for more than a year and "can demonstrate a proven track record". The grants are designed for studios "looking to develop a playable prototype of a narrative-led video game".

The organisation has created a short online questionnaire to help studios establish if their title is elligible for the project. 

There will also be a free workshop in London tomorrow (Wednesday, March 11th) to offer advice on how to apply. While attendance is free, devs need to register their place first.

Grants available range from €10,000 to €150,000, and must be 50 per cent match-funded. The total grants available amount to €2.5m.

Find out more about how to apply over at Media Desk UK. The deadline for applications is 11am on Thursday, March 26th.

Last year, Swedish studio Image & Form received a grant of €120,000 towards the development of SteamWorld Heist. It was one of 29 projects funded by the programme. You can find a full list of titles financed here.
