What Is It?

An academic society the bridge between multi-disciplinary students interested in a career in the video games development industry. We provide our members with opportunities to network with students and guests from the world fastest growing industry; build teams, start projects of their own and create portfolio ready work during workshops and Game Jams.

We also:

Host Industry Guest Lectures and Appearances; where members get the chance to meet Developers.

- Plan travel to industry events: Industry Workshops (London), Develop (Brighton), EGX (Birmingham), EGX Rezzed even possibly Gamescom (Germany). This includes providing discounts on certain ticket purchases and travel.

Offer tutelage to anyone in the society looking for a helping hand, of particular help to upcoming first years.

- Utilize spaces for smaller study workshops or ‘Game Jams’, creating an environment where members who otherwise would have never met, can organize a team, direct a project and create a body of work.

- Offer a platform where students can communicate and exchange knowledge, offer their talents, all to expand their skills toolkit and portfolio to better prepare for a job in Industry
