GD 2009 Government Game Incentive ReportOverview

Game Developer Research is pleased to announce the debut of its fourteenth report, the 'Game Developer 2009 Government Game Incentive Report', an in-depth listing of dozens of government-funded state, provincial, and federal programs targeted at assisting game developers small and large.

Inside the extensive 150-page-plus report is included detailed information on the tax credits, rebates, grants, and other financial options offered by governmental organizations from all over the world.

The 'Game Developer 2009 Government Game Incentive Report' is an invaluable aid to any company seeking to learn and compare the benefits of setting up a studio in different states, provinces, or countries. Agencies researching current models of game developer incentives to build their own programs will also find the report a peerless resource.

Each entry contains a description of and contact information for the assisting institution, a rundown of area developers, information on related deals that have been conducted between governments and developers, reporting on the state of those incentives or the local game industry presence, and a detailed description of the local incentives as offered by the institution. Email and web links are provided to every organization.

The report has been overhauled since 2008's inaugural Government Game Incentive Report. In addition to an expanded coverage section detailing the state of local incentive adoption and overall local game industry presence, every government agency was approached by Game Developer Research for details of particular deals and the game industry-related offerings of its region; those organizations that responded are indicated in the report.

An excerpt from the report -- detailing the Canadian province of Quebec, its tax break incentive details, information on various game industry deals, and coverage of the thriving Montreal game scene -- is also available to download for free.
