Initial funding for this project will be an application to the Australian Government, through Screen Australia.In November of 2012, then Minister for the Arts, Simon Crean, announced a new three-year $20 million fund for the interactive games industry. This fund is managed by Screen Australia, who offers funding up to a maximum of $500,000 per project, dependent on the scale of production (Screen Australia 2014).
To keep production costs low and keep the production and development of the app in Australia, Rainbow Death Studios will apply for the government grant, as RDS currently meets all requirements. (Financial projections for this app is still currently being considered).
The application for government funding is just one avenue of funding that Rainbow Death Studios is pursuing.
