Get In The Game Tour Diary: London
We’re half way through the Get In The Game tour, finishing off a great week visiting universities across London.
This week we were joined by Thad Frogley, Mark Gossage & Will Tarratt from Boss Alien, & Gwaredd Mountain from BAFTA-winning studio, Preloaded. Each spent time sharing their experience and advice with the students alongside our Grads In Games team delivering games careers advice.
