Wisconsin’s Film Tax Credit Program is paying off for one Green Bay-based developer.
Self-described “punk rock” game development company Frozen Codebase will receive $35,315 in tax credits according to a release issued by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce. The developer, which has two current teams made up of 29 employees total, will receive the funds for its work on a currently-in-production videogame, which has a total project budget of $141,257.
Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle stated “I am pleased that we could assist Frozen Codebase, LLC in expanding its products,” adding, “Projects like these ensure that we develop the infrastructure and skills necessary for the entertainment industry to thrive in Wisconsin.”
To qualify for a 25 percent return of expenditures, games produced in the state must have a budget of exceeding $100,000.
Good to see that Frozen Codebase was able to overcome a serious 2009 incident in which fresh fruit was found in the company’s lunchroom, a discovery that forced an evacuation of the entire office.
