Techland, responsible for games like Call of Juarez, Dead Island, and Dying Lightreceived two grants, one of which is for “developing a prototype for an action RPG set in an original fantasy world, played in FPP (first person perspective) and using DX12 technology."

CI Games, responsible for titles like Lords of the Fallen and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3received one grant for a project called LADAI (working title) and another for “the development of innovative technology based on advanced algorithms, dedicated artificial intelligence to generate ambient player in the crowd, and herds of animals." Deadfall Adventures creators The Farm 51 also received two grants, both dedicated to research.


Lastly, Bloober Teamthe studio behind Layers of Fear, will use the funding they received to develop a “self-learning automatic system modeling personalized replayability real-time gaming with the horror genre,
based on the interpretation of the reaction and the player psychology."
