UK Chancellor Alistair Darling has pledged support for the UK games industry in today's Budget.
He hasn't detailed specifics, but promised to reinvigorate the sector by taking similar measures to the film industry, and said we should concentrate on keeping top British talent here.
"Our creative industries are a huge source of jobs, wealth and pride," said Darling, reported by GamesIndustry.biz. "I will offer help to the computer games sector similar to the steps which are helping to restore the fortunes of the British film industry.
"This is a highly successful, growing industry, with half its sales coming from exports and we need to keep British talent in this country."
Perhaps Darling will put basketball hoops in offices and ensure break times are spent skateboarding. That's cool, right?
