DunDev 2024

Competitively selected Tranzfuser alumni independent game development studios came to Dundee from across the UK for DunDev, the four week residential hot housing project that sees a bespoke programme of events, interventions and individual packages of support all geared up to accelerate entrepreneurial growth.

The DunDev Studios

  • Skyline Studios
  • Dragon Scale Studios
  • Dink
  • Knockback Games

With accommodation of a high standard provided, modern shared office space in a central location as well as access to one-to-one consultancy slots, all studios that were accepted on to the programme had the facilities to ensure the best outcome possible from the residential.

Each of the four weeks of DunDev was designed to focus on specific aspects of games development as a commercial enterprise:

The DunDev studios engaged with experts across the fields of publishing, investment, technical expertise, community management as well as having the time and space to work in a dedicated and professional environment on their games.

As well as having the opportunity to sit down and engage with external advisers on various aspects of running a successful indie dev studio, the DunDev teams were invited to take part in two outward-facing events.

In week 3, local Dundee game dev companies and contacts were invited to a showcase event; the DunDev studios took their games along to the McManus Galleries in the center of the city and welcomed over 60 guests to the event, gaining from the exposure that such an event offers as well as connecting with developers based in and around Dundee.
