European Union to invest 1,5 millions EUR in Game Development

EGDF has for months been working closely with the European Commission and the MEDIA Program to present the needs of the European developers. We are very happy to announce that MEDIA 2007 support is now available for "innovating" interactive works for computers, mobile phones, handhelds and game consoles.

The projects are selected on the basis of development strategy, development budget, strategies for financing and distribution, quality of project, feasibility of production, and international distribution. Maximum support is EUR 100.000 for all aspects of development, and cannot exceed 50% of the eligible costs.

Two deadlines are fixed for submissions: November 15, 2007 and April 15, 2008.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is a really nice step, but the problem is that the money will be investem mostly in dull projects and casual games. And, of course, some of the money will be spent on beer.
