A plea has been made to George Osborne to help video games entrepreneurs held back by a lack of cash.
Dundee is home to one of the largest clusters of studios in the UK and the industry is seen as a key way to lift the city’s economy.
Tiga, the group representing the sector, has called on Mr Osborne to establish a war chest for games businesses struggling to get finance and to match the cash up to £200,000.
Dr Richard Wilson, Tiga’s chief executive, said: “It would enhance the independence and commercial viability of games developers and strengthen the industry.
“The matched funding criteria would help to drive investment and job growth.”
