Indielab Games has launched its next UK-wide programme, the Indielab Games UK Accelerator 2024, and is now welcoming applications from ambitious studios.

The three-month accelerator will help studios unlock potential, grow, innovate, attract publishing partners and succeed. The Indielab 2024 Games Accelerator has been redesigned this year to focus not only on developing studios growth plans, but also to accelerate participants’ publisher pitches and development of their game playables, culminating in an opportunity to pitch to a room full of leading publishers at a two-day event hosted by Indielab games and Unity HQ to coincide with Develop:Brighton.

Throughout the accelerator the cohort will hear from notable games developers and have an opportunity to pitch their playables to a selection of leading UK and international publishers, including ID@Xbox, Chucklefish, Raw Fury, Secret Mode and more.

Applications are invited from any UK-headquartered games business with a pitch and a playable, keen to secure a publishing deal. Applications clos on April 9th, and the 10-15 successful studios/participants will be alerted ahead of the programme launch in May.

Programme modules will run from May until July.

Victoria Powell, CEO of Indielab, said: “We’re delighted to bring our Games Accelerator back for 2024, following the success of our games accelerators in 2022 and 2023. This year our accelerator, supported by our partners, will offer bespoke, high-level masterclasses for the UK’s emerging games studios, giving guidance to help drive studio growth and success, and culminating in an exciting Pitch to Publishers event at Unity HQ in Brighton, to coincide with Develop, one of the UK’s leading Games Developer events.

“Indielab’s job is to accelerate growth, connectors studios to knowledge, and to provide pathways to partnerships and investment. We’re here for the long term and committed to working with studios and the wider sector to enable real transformation.”

2024’s Indielab Games UK Accelerator is delivered in partnership with Creative Wales, Creative Scotland, Unity, Glasgow City Council, Moore Kingston Smith, Barclays and Harbottle & Lewis.
