French Government looks to provide state support for game development
France's Minister of Culture is seeking to provide state support for game developers working in France. From Wired News:
"Earlier this month, French Culture Minister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres inducted three game designers into the prestigious Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Literature) as chevaliers, or knights: Peter Molyneux (Populous and Black & White), Eric Viennot (Missing) and Antoine Villette (Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare)."
The support comes in the form of tax breaks, and comes in part to recognize video games as a part of culture on par with literature and film.
