Grads In Games live @ Launch Conference 2014
Our latest blog is now up over at Develop Online, covering our time curating last week’s graduate-focussed Day 1 of the Launch Future Gaming & Digital Conference, featuring Microsoft Rare, Lift London, Modern Dream, Exient, Playground Games and more!
“Learn from those around you.”
The key lessons behind the Grads In Games curated day at Launch Future Gaming & Digital Conference may not have been surprising to those already in the game industry, but to the students and graduates brought together at Innovation Birmingham, the messages were received loud and clear.
Opened with an inspirational introduction from games veteran Karl Hilton and with sessions presented by a team of a dozen industry professionals, students were treated to a full day of direct access to knowledge and experiences of their industry peers.
Covering everything from games careers advice through to detailed insights into life in the game industry, attendees were well-informed with a wealth of knowledge and guidance from top UK studios including Rare, Playground and Exient. With the core purpose being to increase the employability of graduates, this distribution of knowledge, awareness and information from seasoned game professionals was a huge benefit to all attending.
