Welcome to ProtoPlay, the in-person showcase for the Tranzfuser 2024 teams!

Tranzfuser teams from across the UK are coming to Dundee, the birthplace of the Scottish games development industry, to showcase their games in September. Join us for this unqiue event!

What is Tranzfuser?

In case you’re new to Tranzfuser, let us give you a quick overview of what the competition entails; over the summer our entrepreneurial graduate teams have been working on the development of their own-IP game to produce a working prototype. Each has benefited from the wealth of learning materials taking part in Tranzfuser gives them access to, alongside the tailor-made community support they’ve received in the shape of our network of Facilitators (made up of members of past UK Games Fund supported companies) and their own Local Hub*.

*Local Hubs are bases at which teams would  come together to work on their project and take part in any support activity set up by the Hub. 

The winners of this year’s Tranzfuser will be invited to join the UK Games Fund portfolio of funded companies to further develop their project commercially. Details about the winning teams will be shared via the UK Games Fund website soon.
