Three Glasgow-based game developers have made the final cut of

Games and EM Studios will all compete for awards alongside nine
other Scottish Games developers. There are no less than 28
categories, open only to TIGA members, plus two special awards, one
for Game of the Year and the other for Person of the Year.
The last two years have seen a boom in the already thriving
industry for Scotland. TIGA found that in 2012/2013 the number of

only that but both direct and indirect tax revenues rose by 17%.
That's an increase from £35 million to £41 million. They also found
that contributions to the UK's GDP from the region's developers now
