Do you want to know more about working in the Computer Games sector in Scotland? Ever wondered how games are made and where to start?
As part of the first ever Scottish Games Week, join us at the 'Get Into Games' live event where we'll showcase and ignite the opportunities the Computer Games sector can offer those in the South of Scotland! This event is ideal for those interested in working in the industry but who don't know where to begin or what skills are needed, or professionals who are already working with skills which could transfer into the sector.
Hear from Justin Alae-Carew, Co-Head of Games at Blazing Griffin about their journey so far and the breadth of creative skills required to make a game.
You’ll also hear from Digital Development Specialist, Michael Gardiner who will share examples of where games technology is used in non-gaming industries.
And, James Hood, CEO of Esports Scotland, will give an insight into this area of the gaming industry which now boasts a global audience of over 495 million and revenues of over $1 billion as well as sharing how Team Scotland came back with silver medals from this year’s Commonwealth Games
