CryEngine’s $1million fund is now accepting applications
If you are an Independent developer who uses or has used CryEngine on any of your projects then this announcement is for you. If your project needs a financial boost you will have until 9th September to apply for a financial grant from CryEngine’s Indie Development Fund, which they announced earlier in 2016 with the amount of $1 million put towards leading indie projects created with the CryEngine.
The grants are divided into rounds; Round 1 & Round 2 and the selection process is as follows:
In this round the selection process begins with a pre-selection round where Crytek will check that your project/s meet the necessary requirements. If your application is approved in Round 1 your project will be featured in the project applicants showcase.
In this round Crytek will choose three funding applicants. Other than the funding packages there is additional packages such as the six additional projects will receive technical support packages. Each applicant can apply once per project and can only re-apply every three months.
What CryEngine is looking for
For your Indie project to be considered developers need to make sure they have a project that is an exciting as well as artistically promising project. All the project applications will be assessed by a panel of dedicated Crytek developers.
