The Pixel Mill

Platform is an accelerator programme for video game companies in Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland Screen is seeking teams that are passionate about video games and are motivated to establish/grow their company. We support teams that can bring fresh ideas to video game development with the goal of self-publishing a game based on an original IP within 12 months.

  • Up to £60,000 in development funding per company across 3 stages;
  • Up to 12 Months Office Space and access to meeting space;
  • Market Attendance – Gamescom and EGX;
