Konglomerate Games keeps improving lives by taking advantage of tax relief support

Konglomerate Games is a game development company focusing on the health-based game industry, and it leverages video games tax relief, enabling UK game developers to reclaim up to 20% of their production costs.

Konglomerate Games was established by Jamie Bankhead, Connie Reid, and Sam Gainty after they noticed a market gap in health-based gaming. After this realization, they launched the studio and focused on enhancing life experiences through gaming.

The foundation for the company was laid with their university project, Archipelayo, a physiotherapy game designed for children with cystic fibrosis. Since then, Konglomerate has been dedicated to utilizing gaming skills to impact health and well-being positively.

Konglomerate Games’ commitment to quality has earned them international acclaim. Cape Breeze, their game designed to help children suffering from Cystic Fibrosis, received the Serious Play Gold Award. Their recent collaboration with Abertay University’s School of Design and Informatics resulted in “Gone smishing,” a game educating users about cyber security and scam text messages.

CEO of Konglomerate Games, Jamie Bankhead, emphasized the importance of robust business planning in the game industry, stating, “Developing games isn’t just about creativity; it’s about building a business, and it needs someone who is focused on what makes the money and pays wages for the team.”

He highlighted the significance of video games tax relief: “Initiatives like Video Games Tax Relief are essential to sustain business growth and provide some stability.” Video Games Tax Relief (VGTR) allows companies to reclaim up to 20% of their core development costs through a corporation tax saving or a tax credit from HMRC.
