Video game creators will have more resources to hone their skills through a new training and work experience program at Fortune Cat Games Studio.

The studio received $350,000 for a three-year project that establishes an incubator studio to house up to three video game project teams during each year of operation. The teams will produce a video game prototype to be marketed to video game publishers.

"The economic activity generated from this project will result in new intellectual property controlled by Canadians, new technologies, exciting knowledge-economy jobs and new spinoff companies in Manitoba," said MP Rod Bruinooge (Winnipeg South).

The funding is provided through a Winnipeg Partnership Agreement, a collaboration of the federal, provincial and civic governments.
