Never miss the CRYENGINE newsletter
We noticed that you like reading about CRYENGINE and its games. Why not sign up for our newsletter? You will never miss any important news, and we promise that we won't spam you!
When you create a game in CRYENGINE, you become a part of a community. And our community is our greatest resource. You entertain us, challenge us, and inspire us to keep creating every day. We want to invest directly in the people who invest in us. That’s why we started the Indie Development Fund, a grant program for the indie dev teams doing exciting work with CRYENGINE.
The selection process will begin with a pre-selection round during which Crytek will check that your project meets our requirements. Applicants who are approved during this round will be featured in the Candidate Spotlight.
During the second round, Crytek will choose three funding package recipients. Six additional projects will receive technical support packages. A project can only win once, but if you do not receive funding, you can re-apply every three months.
Indie developers – both teams and individuals – are eligible to apply for funding. If you are working on a CRYENGINE project you’re excited about, we want to see it. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what your project is about, or how long you’ve been in the industry. Show us your work with CRYENGINE, and share your passion. For the details on eligibility, check out our FAQ.
In considering applications, we want to see projects that are viable, exciting, and technically and artistically promising. Every project will be assessed by a panel of Crytek developers.
