Happy game developers live in…Wisconsin?

wisconsinQuit giving California and the whole West Coast so much love game develoers! Not only is it home to the majority of game development studios but they have yearly gaming convetions situated there as well.

Why don’t you look eastward toward greener pastures, like the lovely state of Wisconsin. If green pastures and an endless amount of high quality cheese isn’t enough, what about tax reductions?

Wisconsin announced that it now offers devs a 25 percent tax rebate just for game develoeprs to call it their new home. Wisconsin is also trying to lure in more media for television and movie productions to take place in the state for more exposure and business agreements.

According to Joystiq: "Wisconsin is already home to a handful of notable studios, including Marvel Ultimate Alliance dev Raven Software and Prey’s Human Head, though it will be interesting to see if this sizable tax break, along with an additional 15 percent credit for ‘infrastructure development,’ will be enough to convince devs to put down roots in ‘America’s Dairyland.’"
