Limbo wins awards for Excellence in Visual Art and Technical Excellence at the 12th Independent Games Festival held in San Francisco
CAT Science, a government-backed pre-seed capital science park and venture company, has to date invested DKK 2.4m (USD 441,000)  in the Danish computer game Limbo, which is strikingly different to most others in that its universe is not only 2-dimensional, but also black and white.
 
However, CAT's investment has turned out to be a shrewd one, as Limbo has won two prestigious awards – for Excellence in Visual Art and Technical Excellence – at the 12th Independent Games Festival held in San Francisco. On the CAT Science website, director Kim Ove Olsen writes in a press release: "We have believed all along that there are opportunities in developing a Danish games industry, and so we are extremely happy that foreign eyes have been opened to the quality in Limbo and thereby the Danish market."
 
CAT Science is already involved in two major publicly funded projects in the games sector, namely Copenhagen Entertainment and Spilzonen. It has also helped to establish Nordic Game Production which will function as an incubator for game development and help prevent good ideas being lost before they reach the market.
 
"Often the initiatives fall apart because the creative developers lack competences in product development, marketing and distribution. These are the competences we would like to offer the game developers that we choose to invest in," says Kim Ove Olsen.
