Creative production services firm Side has joined UK trade association Tiga.
“Last year a large percentage of our work came from outside the UK and like UK developers we are concerned about the brain drain to overseas territories who receive more government support in the form of tax relief and subsidies," said Andy Emery, Creative Director at Side.
"Therefore we strongly support Tiga’s campaign to achieve Games Tax Relief for the UK development industry. We also hope to network with other TIGA members and continue to increase our profile among the development community," he added.
Side, which has recently worked on high profile titles including Fable III, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, APB and Brink, joins the organisation in the wake of last week’s news that Escape Studios, Waterfront Entertainment, Loughborough and Iguana have signed with Tiga.
“At Tiga we are proud to represent the games industry and the talented, creative companies like Side that make up this exciting sector," added Tiga CEO Richard Wilson. "We also welcome Side’s commitment to back Tiga’s Games Tax Relief campaign. We warmly welcome Side to the Tiga community.”
