! Today Epic Games and Wellcome Trust have launched a new competition Developing Beyond. It will last for a year and will give you a chance to get a piece of the hefty $500,000 pie. [UPD: Unreal Dev Grants still going. Sorry for the mistake.]
To take part in the competition you need to submit compelling, immersive, and highly entertaining game ideas based on the theme of “Transformations”. It’s available only from the developers from Europe. There’s also a UE4-restriction. Plus games have to be made for PC. The finalists will be announced by February 20, 2017.
If you’re lucky enough to get into semi-finals, your studio will receive $15,000. With this money, the idea should be developed into a prototype, which will be presented to the jury at Develop: Brighton. There will be three finalists, each to be awarded $60,000 to continue work. They will be tasked with building the Minimum Viable Product. The winner will get $150,000 in January 2018! The second and third place will get $50,000 and $30,000, accordingly.
The bad thing is that the deadline for applications is February 10. Better start working on those amazing game ideas now.
