Toge Productions, the Indonesian developer of Coffee Talk has announced the launch of the Toge Game Fund Initiative, which will support Southeast Asian game developers.
Southeast Asian-based developers will be able to pitch games to the publisher and receive up to $10,000 in funding.
Alongside financial support, the fund will also provide mentorship, consultation and project management to assist with the creation of prototypes or minimum viable products.
Developers will retain ownership of the IP for all supported projects, but Toge will have the right of first refusal to sign those projects to a publishing deal. The company said on Twitter.
“In order to help marginalized and underrepresented game developers of Southeast Asia turn their game ideas into reality, we want to provide a safety net for you to experiment and iterate.”
✨🌱 TOGE GAME FUND INITIATIVE 🌱✨
If you're from Southeast Asia and you're looking for a fund for your game project, submit your pitch deck to us and get up to 10K USD!
