The Creative Europe fund for ‘Development: Video Games’ is open! Through the MEDIA programme, Creative Europe offers grants between €10,000 and €150,000 for the development of narrative video games. The UK can fully participate in Creative Europe until it leaves the EU and our advice is to continue applications for the current calls.
