Launched at the end of June 2018, the third call for projects was a great success: 69 projects were submitted to Pro Helvetia, demonstrating the strength of Swiss interactive creation. The jury selected 14 projects that combined the best formal qualities, feasibility and commercial potential. These projects will receive well targeted funding according to their stage of development: design, production or post-production. These measures are intended to help young design and interactive media talents to establish themselves on the market as part of Pro Helvetia’s «Culture and Business» focus.

The next call for projects is now open for applications until 1 March 2019.

Three studios supported by Pro Helvetia:


Stardust, «AVA»
Borne by an enchanting visual universe, the player accompanies AVA on her journey by answering various puzzles. This game, designed for mobile use, was created by developer Tabea Iseli.



5am Games, «Letters – a written adventure»
Founded by Aleksandra Iakusheva, Martina Hotz and Selina Capol, «Letters» offers users a poetic adventure in words and images: By navigating the correspondence between the heroine Sarah and Sasha, the player unlocks each step by finding the right words.
