Right Pedal Studio is being seeded by River City Labs, and might well be the shot in the arm that new mobile-gaming developers need.

Successful applicants will receive funding up to AU$50,000, office space and access to a mentor program.

Mentors will include Morgan Jaffit, co-founder of Defiant Development (publishers of Ski Safari); Dan Vogt (co-founder of Halfbrick); Gordon Moyes, convenor of Griffith University's game program and producer of the Destroy All Humans! series; Pras Moorthy, product manager of Kixeye and co-owner of the Mana Bar; and more.

Although Right Pedal is based in Brisbane, the program is open to all Australian residents. Applications can be made via the Right Pedal Studios website. If you've got a killer idea that just needs a boost, this could be perfect for you.
