TIGA (The Independent Games-Developers Association), the trade association representing the UK games industry, has said that the House of Lords Communications Committee has essentially backed their campaign for a UK Tax Break for developers.
This news comes just days after it emerged that the UK had slipped down to sixth in the world league table of game developing countries. With most people from the UK looking for work in the games industry going abroad to countries such as Canada and the USA, could a possibility of a tax break see more work for those developers in the UK?
I (seeing as I'm still actively looking for a job in the games industry in the UK) will be watching this space with my breath held. Something needs to be done and done quick, or else the UK won't have a games industry to save.
Now for a picture, a picture, hmmmm .... here you go, a picture of the House of Lords:
