Have an Idea for the Next Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Pandemic or Splice? Get £10K To Make it Happen


Apply for Development Funding and Pitch Your Game at the Develop in Brighton Conference 2013


Develop in Brighton in partnership with the Wellcome Trust brings a Live Pitch event to this year’s conference.

Do you have an idea for the next ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’, ‘Pandemic’ or ‘Splice’?

Developers are invited to apply for the chance to receive up to £10,000 each to develop a high-impact pitch for their game to help secure a distribution platform and funding.

The ideas for your game need to draw on or be inspired by contemporary or historical biological or medical science in an innovative and accessible way.

The games can be developed for any mass-appeal genre, platform or business model.

Those who are successful will go on to pitch their developed game ideas to a panel of publishers and funders at a live event at Develop in Brighton on Wednesday 10 July 2013.

Panellists joining the Wellcome Trust include Sony XDev and crowd-funding platform Indiegogo.

Participating developers will be invited to receive additional pitch training ahead of the live event.
How To Apply

Submissions are open until Friday 26 April.

Development funds can be used to develop a game prototype, demo or mood reel.
