Empowering Game Development Students with Funding and Opportunities.

Tranzfuser, is a talent development initiative by UK Games Talent and Finance CIC, aims to inject fresh talent into the UK’s gaming industry each year.

With a focus on honing creative portfolios through externally validated projects, Tranzfuser offers a pathway to success for recent UK game development graduates. This year, the ACM Games Academy is thrilled to deepen its involvement in this exceptional program, providing students with unparalleled experiences, opportunities, and financial support.

Through Tranzfuser, students can take their game concepts and prototypes all the way to publishing. The program’s UK-wide nature and its direct link to the UK Games Fund provide participating teams with access to grants, enabling them to fully dedicate and develop their prototypes.

The team behind Tranzfuser boasts extensive experience in the gaming industry, having originated Dare to be Digital, ProtoPlay, the BAFTA Ones to Watch Awards, Crunchtime, the IP Manifest, and the UK Prototype Fund. Their expertise is now channelled into UK Games Talent and Finance CIC, ensuring that Tranzfuser remains a leading force in talent development.

A notable advantage of the Tranzfuser program is its vibrant community, which has grown over the past eight years. This community comprises past participants, reviewers, facilitators, and competition connections, all of whom contribute their knowledge and expertise to new Tranzfuser teams. This collaborative environment encourages the sharing of advice and experience, fostering a strong support network for aspiring game developers.

The ACM Games Academy is excited to announce that both its London and Guildford campuses will serve as hubs for Tranzfuser this year. This highlights ACM’s commitment to cultivating the next generation of gaming industry leaders. The Guildford campus, as the only hub in Surrey, underscores the Academy’s commitment in the region’s game development scene.

The involvement of ACM Games Academy in Tranzfuser offers students an extraordinary platform for growth and success in the gaming industry. With financial support, expert mentorship, and a wealth of opportunities, students can refine their skills, develop valuable connections, and kickstart their careers and start a games studio of their own. As ACM continues to expand its reach and influence, it remains dedicated to shaping the future of game development talent.
