DUBLIN, August 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Digit Games to create a space for promising startups to develop their titles
Digit Game Studios has announced the first two teams to take up residence as Batcat Games and Bitsmith games both of which received CSF funding from Enterprise Ireland recently. Digit will offer space, mentorship and access to markets through its existing team and network.
"It is in our interest to help to grow the base of great game companies in Ireland and a games incubator initiative made the most sense to us. The first high potential teams to move into Digit's incubator, Bitsmith and Batcat, not only get access to purpose built office space but also access to mentoring from the Digit team, the most experienced games development team in the country. We are not an accelerator offering investment for equity, instead we are looking to continue the great initiatives already in place from EI by giving game startups the biggest chance of success," said Richard Barnwell, CEO of Digit, commenting at the launch.
