Earlier this week, VAF/Gamefonds announced the results of their latest funding call. The commissions had their work cut out for them due to a gianormous influx of projects. The decisions weren’t always easy, but as our industry continues to grow, we have to accept that the bar to secure funding is being raised with every new call.
If your submission didn’t make the cut this round, it doesn’t necessarily mean the commission doesn’t believe in your game. It just means there were other applications who were deemed better. Keep at it!
Without further ado, here’s the projects that made it this time.
- Warcave received € 50.000 for Project Black Legend (entertainment game)
- Curious Cats received € 35.000 for KATIE (serious game)
- Rocket Vulture received € 43.000 for Detective Dash (entertainment game)
- Stefan Bauwens (and Cindy Ho) received € 50.000 for Short Circuit 3D (educational game)
