La. Tech Park opening video game incubator
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Tech Park announced today they were opening a new studio for rising video game developers in Baton Rouge to get access to the tools and exposure they need to succeed.
They said the "Level Up Lab" would be the first video game incubator in the south, with an 1,800 square foot studio to work on games, mobile apps and other digital content.
The lab will include a motion capture studio, sound recording space, and other hardware and software necessary for video game and app development. The Tech Park will also help new companies with finance, fundraising and public relations.
Tech Park representatives said three studios were already accepted to work at the lab, and other companies can apply to take part at LevelUpLab.com.
The lab was partly funded by an investment from the Delta Regional Authority, a congressionally-mandated organization founded to create jobs in the Delta region.
