The Digital Game and Gamified e-Learning Equity Fund invests in Saskatchewan's digital developers, helping them create digital games with commercial potential. All projects developed and designed with support from this equity fund must be made available for sale.
Digital game developers can apply for an equity investment to cover half their project's development and design costs, up to $100,000 per project. Creative Saskatchewan's stake in the digital game is based on its percentage of the total amount of equity raised by the developer.
Digital games and gamified e-learning projects are eligible for this equity investment. Eligible projects include apps for smart phones and tablets, console or PC games, and augmented or virtual reality experiences. Projects focused on education or training are welcome, as long as the experience has been "gamified," meaning users will feel like they are playing a game.
