I’ve been involved in helping to setup the 2011 Brains Eden 48 Hr Student Game Jam which will be taking place in our game development labs at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge on 9-11th July. Students will have 48hrs to develop a complete working game and will have the opportunity to interact with representatives from Sony, Jagex, Ninja Theory, Frontier and several other major UK games companies!
On 11th July, the completed games will be on display, ready to play, as part of the Brains Eden event which will then feature a tete a tete between industry and academia with leading industry names talking about future trends, collaboration with education and some of the key threats and opportunities facing the UK’s games industry. All set with the backdrop of a Games Artwork exhibition of professional studio and student work displayed in the new state of the art Digital Gallery at Anglia Ruskin University.
The complete games will be available for download after the Brains Eden event, link the to the download page will follow after the event.
