Incubator program applications encouraged by Tiga and DR Studios

Following the recent announcement of Train2Game’s Incubator business development programe for its most talented students, Tiga and DR Studios have invited potential applicants to enroll onto the scheme.

The invitation requests “a professional, highly creative team of Train2Game student graduates with Tiga diplomas” to seek to become the first internal Incubator team, which will be situated on-site at DR Studios.

“We are seeking groups of 3-4 people who can clearly demonstrate their ability and commitment and are in a position to live and work in Milton Keynes where DR Studios is based,” the invitation states.

“To be considered as a team we need an introductory document to explain who the team is, how the team is made up (artist/designer/programmer/other) and why you feel you could be instrumental in creating a successful micro developer.”
 
Shortlisted teams will be invited to DR Studios to pitch ideas to a management team who will in turn present the best pitches to the Tiga advisory board.

“I think this is a fantastic opportunity for those studying towards their Tiga Diploma to go straight into professional games development under the guiding hand of industry experts,” said Tiga CEO Richard Wilson.

“This initiative is a further practical demonstration of Tiga’s commitment to supporting the UK games industry: helping start-ups as part of the campaign to make the UK the best place to do games business.”
