Feral Vector has sponsorship this year; enough that we can cover costs and bring some interesting people up without worrying so much. We’d like to give massive thanks to the following companies who are making FEral VEctor in Hebden Bridge possible once more.
First of all, festival production for Feral Vector is being funded by local studio Crows Crows Crows:
They’re a relatively new studio led by William Pugh, making experimental work. If you were around for Feral Vector last year you’ll remember William doing magnificent entertaining things with Kevin Patterson, and art director Dominik Johann making brilliant stuff out of cardboard. Their debut game Doctor Langeskov, The Tiger, and the Terribly Cursed Emerald; is free on Steam and itch.io.
Our tech sponsor for the second year running is Sheffield-based Boneloaf:
One of the reasons we love Boneloaf so much is that they’re a highly atypical studio: among their number they have a very high proportion of people with degrees in fine art, and their resulting openness to experimentation is really visible in their output and outlook.
Twisted Tree Games are once again offering a little sponsorship to support interesting programming:
You probably know their previous game Proteus, and they’re currently making The Forest Of Sleep.
Media lawyers Sheridans once again sponsor the tea for Feral Vector:
If you make games and are scaling to the point where you’re talking to publishers or need to put contracts in place, Sheridans are a highly experienced and approachable group of lawyers who already serve many independent developers.
Finally, we’d like to thank the A MAZE for media support in the past few years.
As well as festivals in Berlin and Johannesburg, they run a host of other interesting events centred on experimental games and play, supporting creators to make and show really interesting new work. The UK has quite a way to go before there’s any comparable scene here, but A MAZE have been helping to kick that boundary outward, and supporting UK creators to show to an international audience too.Tags: A MAZE, Boneloaf, Crows Crows Crows, Sheridans, sponsors, Sponsorship, Twisted Tree Games
