Andy Thomason and Greg Bedwell will lead a discussion of the issues facing game developers of next-generation video games on consoles and the PC platform.

Once the realm of hobbyists, the games industry has become far more serious in recent years and is now bigger than Hollywood.

For a new generation, games have become more than a source of entertainment extending the range of social networks and providing education in a structured environment.

The games industry provides a structured career path for those who wish to make it their life. Artists and programmers, producers and designers are all needed to help create the magic.

This talk will be about the skills required to work in the games industry, and some examples of what we do here in Bristol to support the industry around the world.

Andy Thomason and Greg Bedwell join us for the event from SN Systems.
