Louisiana’s decided to award games companies in the state a tax break of 25 percent.

ESA’s welcomed the move.

“We commend Governor Jindal for his strong leadership as well as that of Senator Duplessis for expanding the state’s computer and videogame development and production base, and helping lead the way in creating the next generation of entertainment innovation in Louisiana,” said ESA boss Michael Gallagher.

“Developers and publishers live and work for years in states where games are created, providing a higher return on investment than any form of entertainment.”
