Game Republic injects funding into Tunaâ??s Cletus Clay project

UK-based indie outfit Tuna has become the newest beneficiary of a regional ‘digital business investment’ fund.

Tuna will receive a £30,000 grant to aid development of the studio’s newest title, Cletus Clay. The funds come via Game Republic, the trade association for the games sector in Yorkshire and Humber.

“As a Sheffield-based company, it’s great that we can be supported locally by organisations such as Game Republic,” said Alex Amsel, Tuna MD.

“With their help Yorkshire has become a fantastic region for the games industry to grow and evolve.”
