Get In The Game Tour Diary: South / South East

We’ve travelled a long way this week to visit universities in the South for the penultimate week of our Get In The Game tour.

Beginning the week at the UWE Bristol and the University of Bath, we enjoyed some lovely views on the way to Southampton.

Sean Frisby and Hussain Sheikh from award-winning studio Futurlab joined us this week to share their journey into the games industry. It’s been great to hear Sean’s and Hussain’s inspiring stories and gain an insight into the perks of working for a smaller studio.

Boss Alien also joined us this week for their last week of talks on their home turf, and we’ve loved having them on tour with us again this year. Mark Gossage gave us the pleasure of seeing some game trailers at Southampton Solent and University of Southampton – where we had two of our biggest student turn-outs yet.

The pizza went down a treat at Southampton after a busy day!

Thanks everyone for joining us this week, including Hussain Sheikh and Sean Frisby from Futurlab, Mark Gossage and Thad Frogley from Boss Alien.

And thanks to UWE Bristol, University of Bath, Winchester School of Art, Southampton Solent, University of Southampton, Brighton University and Sussex University for having us!
