Video Game Development EACEA-19-2019
CALL FOR PROPOSALS: SUPPORT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF EUROPEAN VIDEO GAMES
The objective is to increase the capacity of European video game producers to develop projects with highly innovative content and quality gameplay, which will have the potential to circulate throughout Europe and beyond and to improve the competiveness of the European video games industry in European and international markets by enabling the retention of intellectual property by European developers.
Applicants may submit a proposal to develop a concept and project (activities to the point that the concept leads to a playable prototype or trial version) of highly innovative and creative narrative storytelling video games designed for commercial exploitation for PCs, consoles, mobile devices, tablets, smart phones and other technologies.
Only the activities relating to the development phase for the following projects are eligible: Narrative storytelling video games regardless of platform or expected distribution method. The story must be told or shown throughout the whole game (in-game storytelling) and not only as an introduction or an ending to the
game. In all cases the video game must be intended for commercial exploitation.
The production phase (see definition) of the submitted project must not be scheduled to start before 8 months after the date of submission of the application.
The financial contribution is between EUR 10.000 and EUR 150.000 provided the amount does not exceed 50% of the total eligible costs of the action.
