Multimedia entertainment group mere mortals has joined games industry body Tiga.

The group, based in the north-eastern English city of Newcastle, works on projects in areas such as TV, film, web development and game development.



Since its establishment back in 1999, Mere Mortals has worked on projects as high-profile as the Danny Boyle film trio Slumdog Millionaire, Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later.

Mere Mortals Managing Director Steve Walmsley said that the group is joining Tiga because it believes it is the “trade body that is representing the important issues which face game developers in the UK, that is effectively lobbying Government on issues such as tax breaks and education, promoting our industry in the media and providing developers with access to services that benefit our business.”
