Arts Council Malta is responsible for the management and administration of the Malta Digital Games Fund (MDGF).
This fund will support the creation of locally developed video games while providing an opportunity to upcoming developers to have access to expertise and mentoring that will help improve their artistic, technical and business skills. Proposed game projects should be innovative in terms of design, concept, storyline, interface and audience engagement among others.
The objectives of this fund are:
To encourage the creation of digital games by small companies, small teams and groups of individuals based in Malta;
To support Maltese and Malta-based creative talent that demonstrates long-term potential to set up sustainable enterprises;
To strengthen digital games as a cultural product and Malta as a hub for digital design and innovation.
