Tranzfuser 2018: New search for top video game talent begins



Date Posted: February 5, 2018

Tranzfuser, the UK-wide search for the future creative leaders of the video game industry, has launched its 2018 competition today.

Organised by UK Games Talent and Finance CIC (UKGTF) and funded by the UK Government, Tranzfuser is aimed at graduates looking to break into the games development industry, with a strong focus on getting their game to market.

Northern Ireland Screen acts as a regional hub for Tranzfuser in Northern Ireland, offering an inspirational central space and focal point for Tranzfuser teams to locate in or meet periodically whilst working elsewhere; providing a dynamic learning environment that cultivates this diverse community, acting as a hot house for innovative games IP development and resulting in high level of achievement over a short period of time.

Now in its third year, teams of talented graduates are invited to apply to take part in the summer-long competition to work collaboratively on turning their game ideas in to actual working projects.

At the end of development, teams will showcase their prototype games at a prestigious consumer games show where they will pitch for a grant of up to £25,000 from the UK Games Fund.

Successful applicants will be awarded a £5,000 budget to allocate as they choose throughout the competition. Further information, including application details, can be found here.
