Funds to be invested into finishing development of sci-fi strategy browser title Burrow

Plymouth-based independent studio Remode has been awarded £100,000 in funding from the Creative England Business Investment Fund.

The investment comes as part of the £5 million Regional Growth Fund, with Remode just one of five companies from 109 applicants to secure the funding.

The investment will be used to complete development of the studio’s upcoming sci-fi strategy browser title Burrow, set to be released by the end of the year.

Last year Remode was also awarded £25,000 from the Abertay Prototype Fund after Burrow won the Tiga Games contest, enabling the developer to take the project to the prototype stage.

“We are all incredibly excited here at Remode,” said Remode CEO Ella Romanos.

“The Creative England funding is crucial in allowing us to complete Burrow, the most challenging and creative project we have undertaken yet. We are full speed ahead to complete the game by the end of this year – watch this space!”

News of the Regional Growth Fund investment in Remode comes shortly after it was announced that Liverpool-based mobile developer Atomicom was also awarded with funding from Creative England as part of its £1m investment for digital media content development.
