Incubations with Failbetter Games

We offer an incubation program for micro studios or individuals making games. This includes:

A desk for up to 3 days a week
Access to informal mentoring and guidance from our writing, editorial, art and marketing teams, providing they aren’t too busy
Access to internal meetings and information about the operation of a successful studio
Internet, tea and coffee, breakout meeting space and some spectacular views
A standing invite to our monthly drinks for developers, writers and journalists

We won’t be able to provide you with software licenses, computer equipment or anything else. We will ask you to sign a confidentiality agreement. We won’t charge you any kind of fee.

If you’re looking for funding for your indie project, with or instead of an incubation, you should apply to Fundbetter, our fund for narrative games and interactive fiction.

The terms and length of each incubation will differ depending on the size and ambition of your project, the size of your team, how far along you are, and other project-by-project factors.

Apply by emailing with some info about you and your project, examples from your current work, your plans, and why you think Failbetter would be best placed to help you.
