Complex Games, Winnipeg's largest videogame development studio, is thrilled to announce that they have landed over $480,000 in funding from the Canada Media Fund (CMF) Experimental Stream.
This money will be used to develop their own mobile video game title "Iron Skies." The CMF's Experimental Stream provides cost-shared investment for select Canadian interactive projects that demonstrate innovation and commercialization potential within the marketplace.
In addition to the support from the CMF, Complex has received funding from Manitoba's new Commercialization Support for Business (CSB) program, to support the development of Iron Skies.
"We are thrilled that the CMF and CSB have decided to support our efforts with Iron Skies", said Noah Decter-Jackson, Complex Games President. "We recently moved to a new office to accommodate a larger staff, and this announcement means that we'll be looking to expand even further in the coming year."
Growth over the past six months for Complex Games has been significant, taking them from 12 to 18 full-time staff. This recent expansion makes them the largest video game producer in Manitoba with an eye on even larger entrepreneurial activities.
Complex Games has been developing innovative, top-selling and award-winning interactive projects and videogames in Manitoba for the past 10-years. They are the co-recipient of the Canada New Media Award for Best Web Game in 2010 and have worked with a range of clients including The CBC, Sharp, Corona, MEGA Brands, and Sony Entertainment.
