The developer Frogwares announced that he had received a MegaGrant from Epic Games. The funds will be used to bring his Ukrainian staff and support him in the process.
“The war has negatively affected our workflow and led to the partial disorganization of our firm. The funds from the Epic MegaGrant will be crucial for relocating employees to safer areas and will help those relocated to more remote regions of Ukraine and the other European countries to maintain their financial stability. ” The amount of funds received has not been disclosed, but MegaGrants are known to range from $ 5,000 to $ 500,000.
Frogwares is a software house with studios located in Ukraine and Ireland. Among the titles developed are Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, The Sinking City and Magrunner: Dark Pulse. It is not the only development studio to have had huge problems due to the war in Ukraine.
