Welcome to Gameplan PEI

GamePlan is Prince Edward Island's strategy to develop and diversify the video game sector. Since 2005, PEI's video game sector has been growing in size and prominence, we have game development studios, testing services, customer service centers and audio studios. PEI companies are working on various platforms, primarily Android and iOS. Games produced by our Prince Edward Island companies include: Miner Meltdown, Onion Force, Simpson's Tapped Out, South Park: Tenorman's Revenge, Super Monkey Ball, and Trade Nations.

A lot of jurisdictions are trying to lure video game companies to their area, many offering some level of financial assistance. Prince Edward Island recognizes that incentives are only one small part of what makes an attractive location for your company. That’s why Prince Edward Island has developed a video game mindset. We get the video game industry and culture, and we are passing it on to our partners and to secondary and post-secondary students.

Prince Edward Island is a jurisdiction that offers incentives to eligible companies. But we have much more to offer.

Why would I move my business to PEI?

Good question - I have the answer for you. We understand the challenges that business owners face when they develop their title. Cash flow is tight and you may be taking on contract work to support your business. We have worked with gaming studios before and can help you to navigate these challenges. Prince Edward island offers you the most cost effective location for gaming in North America.
