Prepared in collaboration between Game Developers Association of Turkey (TOGED) and Investment Support and Promotion Agency (ISPAT), the Turkey Loves Indies campaign kicks off today with the launch ofwww.turkeylovesindies.com . Through the website, developers can get information about game development opportunities in Turkey and what government support is specifically being offered for game developers.
Created with the goal of highlighting the different means provided by the Turkish government to support independent developers, the campaign is backed by ODTU TEKNOKENT, Turkish Electro Technology (TET), TOGED and ISPAT. The Turkey Loves Indies campaign aims at providing game developers all around the world with the chance of developing their dream game in Turkey. It also hopes to set an example to other countries by underlining the extensive government support available in the country.
The new website offers detailed information about game development opportunities in Turkey and lists the wide range of support provided to independent developers by various institutions. Developers can also learn how to benefit from the relevant support programs available.
In order to broaden the campaign’s reach, Turkey became the partner country of Gamescom this year and has sponsored two events, namely Respawn and Game Developers Conference, that will take place prior to Gamescom. Respawn aims to bring game development enthusiasts of all ages together while Game Developers Conference (GDC) is a popular gathering where professional game developers get together, network and share their expertise.
