Shifty Eye Games Receives Funding from Creative Export Canada Program, Bungie Co-founder to Advise

Alexander Seropian, the founder of Bungie, Justin Ratushniak, and Vikas Gupta have all been added to the board of advisors of Shifty Eye Games, an independent game production business run by veterans of the industry. The business also disclosed that it is still looking to add important personnel.

These calculated actions align with an important turning point for the business: while Shifty Eye gets ready to embark on its largest project to date—a stealth-adventure game based on a well-known film franchise—the studio was also granted $788,500 CAD in funding to market, distribute, and sell the game in over 180 countries. Through the Export-Ready Stream initiative of Creative Export Canada, the funding is provided by Canadian Heritage and the Government of Canada.

Tuncer Deniz, ex-Bungie project lead and CEO and founder of Shifty Eye Games stated,“Adding deeper insight and expertise to our advisory board is a critical step in Shifty Eye’s rapid evolution into a premier game development studio. Alexander, Justin and Vikas bring incredible media and entertainment experience to Shifty Eye, and we look forward to leveraging their acumen as we continue to build our upcoming game project. With Shifty Eye also receiving funding through the Creative Canada Export Project, we now have the resources to promote the Canadian gaming industry around the world, bolster our talent pool, and provide our team with the necessary support to make our next – and every project – a hit.”
