In episode 2 we follow three more students as they develop their own game and face a professional interview to discover if they have the skills, passion and ambition to make them stand out as a game dev star. This week we meet Tamara “Tami” Tanasescu of Edinburgh’s Herriot-Watt University, Sam Cipolat from the University of Hull and Robin Van Nunen of NHTV.
With over 600 entrants across the competitions, the 2016 Search For A Star competitions have been the biggest in the history of the student games development challenges. Offering students a unique chance to gain valuable feedback and insight from games professionals, Search For A Star & Sumo Digital Rising Star also offer graduates their crucial first step into a career in games.
