Alright Dundee!

Why Dundee & Scotland ?

remote control productions scotland (RCP scotland) coming to the city of Dundee is no coincidence. Dundee is an authentic scottish gem, a city positioned along the ancient and beautiful river, Tay. Labelled Scotland’s sunniest city, Dundee over the last three decades enjoys a phase of growth in both tourism and tech. Video games play a huge part in that recent history, something that many local students and veterans of the games industry are proud of. A place where Grand Theft Auto originated and the world-renowned Abertay University’s academic programs in gaming have for the last 20 years and to this day, delivered the highest quality graduates. 

Today, notable and indie game studios have cemented gaming into the Dundonian map, with its origins in studios like DMA Design (Rockstar North) and Realtime Worlds. Every year, graduates from Abertay University begin employment in games companies around the UK or start their own studios and take part in competitions like Dare Academy, thus driving a vibrant indie community.

But here’s the kicker… Many of those startup indie studios don’t make it past their first year. This needs to change and this is RCP scotland’s mission.

Why remote control productions?

If history has taught us anything, setting up a successful games studio isn’t easy. Every year hundreds of studios around the world fail despite having teams of highly talented professionals with brilliant game concepts. You might agree that this is demotivating for all those gifted developers – Unfortunately, Dundee is no exception and this ‘grinds our gears’. 

We’ve looked through lists of new Indie startup studios that formed in Dundee in recent years, and sadly many are now gone. 

We’re all creatives but in our opinion, running your own game studio requires a business mindset. You and your team are going to feel so much better knowing that you can focus on the game development while an RCP scotland strike force supports you in your ambition to become a successful studio. We will find projects and help you deliver them in the best possible way.

At RCP, we nurture talent by supporting and steering game studios towards self-sufficiency and helping them grow. We believe developers should focus on what they do best – creating great games – but with a foundation built upon best practice paired with commercial knowledge. You will learn to make your studio sustainable and the business of making games both fun and rewarding. Studio and team vision are crucial; the family shares a core set of values that drive everything that happens, people are the most important part, with honesty, commitment to the projects and each other, and collectively winning and growing.

Better yet? Being part of the RCP family of studios, and we are a family, will mean you aren’t alone getting through those first few challenging years.
