Today, we are proud to announce we’ve been awarded the maximum available funding of £50,000, from Creative England’s one million pound GamesLab programme.
Creative England’s GamesLab aims to sustain and aid the growth of the most innovative games companies in the South West of England by providing grants as well as expertise.
Head of Production here at Amuzo, Adrian Smith, is delighted with the prospect of once more creating a unique brand. “Launching Tomb Raider with Core Design was one of the highlights of my career to date. Publishing something you create from the ground up is a thrilling experience; one I can’t wait to share with the team here in Bournemouth.”
We aim to create something brand new, that is not only uniquely British and great fun to play, with this boost of support from Creative England‘s GamesLab and hope it reflects the innovative work being created by games studios here in the South West.
2013 was a busy year for us as we ported titles to seven platforms, monetising virtual content on each one. Our Business Development Director, Mike Hawkyard, added “We’re really proud of our accomplishments to date. This grant has come at the best possible time for us, allowing us to leverage our team, technology, and contacts from a position of great success.”
Set initially in a quintessentially British village, our latest IP, running under the code name title of ‘Project Greener Grass‘ will feature crazy cosmic cows locked in an intergalactic battle against flocks of mutinous mutton. It’s going to be an action-packed arcade-style adventure that will leave players wanting mower…
Creative England GamesLab is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), supported by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund (RGF) and led by Creative England.
