“I am so glad organisations like Pro Helvetia are tackling the challenges of helping local studios in time without travel, events and in-person meetings. It can be difficult for studios to get the support and help they need in the best of times, so it is extra important that local organisations step in to help where possible. I am very proud to be a mentor this year, especially with the high quality of devs and games to cover”, said Callum Underwood portfolio manager at Kowloon Nights. Underwood will mentor Stray Fawn Studio and Moroi.
