Introducing our new Grads In Games partner Gamer Camp who are sponsoring our Search For A Star competition.
Created and staffed by industry veterans, Gamer Camp is a unique finishing school for game developers (including coders, artists, designers and producers), designed to give graduates the skills and experience the games industry demands.
Endorsed by the the industry, Gamer Camp is partnered with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), Rare, Radiant Worlds, Playground Games, Exient, Natural Motion, Mediatonic, FreeStyleGames and Grads In Games.
“As an active PlayStation First member, we work closely with Sony and we’re one of the few education providers with PlayStation 4 Development Kits,” says Iain Harrison, Course Director at Gamer Camp.
Students on the course experience all stages of the games development process, from tackling real game briefs designed by leading developers to producing their own video game. The course is designed to equip students with the practical skills they need for a career in the games industry.
Gamer Camp is unique in its teaching styles and environment. Students work within a simulated studio environment, with full-time office hours on real game briefs designed by one of our partner developers. From designing the game briefs, to teaching and mentoring, to assessing the course, all students are given a real taste for working in a games studio.
Finalists for this year’s Search For A Star could win a place worth £9500 on one of the following Gamer Camp courses:
- MA Video Game Development
- MSc Video Game Development
- MA Video Enterprise, Production & Design
“Gamer Camp is committed to proving an industry supported, industry led educational experience to would be developers,” says Iain.
“Due to this ethos, we are more than happy to support Grads In Games, as they share the same industry focused approach to gaining entry into the game industry. The game industry is made up of the people who work within it, and only by helping to nurture new and exciting talent can we ensure its continued success.”
