Whore Of The Orient secures $200,000 in funds

Screens NSW backs KMM Interactive Productions project

KMM Interactive Productions' Whore Of The Orient is showing signs of life again, with a new $200,000 in funding from Australian trade and investment board Screens NSW.

Original developer Team Bondi closed its doors in 2011, and some of the team found a new home at production studio Kennedy Miller Mitchell, where work on Whore Of The Orient continued. Last April there were reports production had been shut down after the game lost its publisher, but this latest turn of events suggests the project is still ongoing.

"Through the Interactive Media Fund, Screen NSW has proudly supported a range of immensely talented and innovative creative professionals who have helped Australia lead the world in the exciting world of interactive storytelling," said Screen NSW CEO Maureen Barron.

"Along the way we have helped build creative digital skills, business opportunities, innovative new products and valuable international reputation."

A number of other games studios also received funding, including Intuitive Game Studios, formed by L.A. Noire lead designer Alex Carlyle and storyboard artist Kelly Baigent. It received $30,451 for Canonical Five, "a thrilling interactive detective game."
