DIGITAL GAME DEVELOPMENT GRANT PROGRAM

GRANT FUND OVERVIEW

The Digital Game Development Grant Program invests in Saskatchewan's digital developers, helping them create digital games with commercial potential. All projects developed and designed with support from this grant must be made available for sale.

DEADLINE INFORMATION

Opening date: June 27, 2022

Deadline: October 26, 2022

If a deadline falls on a statutory holiday or a weekend, applications will be accepted until 4:00 pm the following business day.

A NOTE ON ELIGIBILITY

If ineligible expenses exceed 50% of the project budget, the application will be deemed ineligible.

Activities that receive funding from the Saskatchewan Arts or SaskCulture are not eligible for support through Creative Saskatchewan investment programs.

OUR INVESTMENT

Funding will be in the form of a grant. 

Applicants may apply for a maximum of $100,000 or 50% of the total cash budget, whichever is the lesser, for one application or the entire life of the project. 

Applicants may only receive funding one time for each stage of development for the same project.  

COVID-19: TEMPORARY CHANGES

To provide our clients with improved access to grants and programs while facing financial pressures associated with COVID-19, the following temporary guideline changes are in place:

  • A restriction that prevented applicants from including both an administration fee and in-house expenses in their project budget has been temporarily removed. 

YOUR PROJECT

Digital games and gamified e-learning projects are eligible for this grant. 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.
