“The Invest to Grow scheme has been a dream to work with. The rules and engagement are simple and the grant allowed us to put underlying technology in place to underpin our most commercially successful game. Without the funding, we could not have undertaken the project.”

Legendary Games chief executive Ewan Lamont

“We are delighted to support Legendary Games through the Invest to Grow scheme. Our funding has seen new jobs created and strong business growth and we look forward to working with them on further collaborative opportunities with the University, now and in the future.”
