How many companies get into a program?
We take up to 10 studios per program.
My team is based really far away from your program, should we even apply?
YES. We have taken teams from all over the globe, 16 different countries in fact including: Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Finland, India, China, Georgia and Germany. We have had applications from 67 different countries and we have considered them all! We don’t believe geography should stop you!
How do you select the teams?
We have a rigorous process that takes about a month from the deadline, depending on number of applications, to select the teams. We use a panel of experts drawn from our pool of mentors to evaluate the applications and select the best for the program.
I want to know the status of my application, can you tell me?
Our selection process has a number of stages. We will do our best to keep you proactively updated on the status of your application.
I don’t speak good English, should I still apply?
YES. While the program is in English, you should still consider applying. We have had many successful people come through the program who didn’t think they were good English speakers.
I’m having difficulty describing my game in the Application Form, is that the only criteria you base your decision on?
We base our decisions on a combination of your team members’ track record, your ability to communicate, previous and current game quality, and any other information that you can provide. We will also interview you on Skype which will give you another chance to explain anything that is difficult to put on paper.
