Our first Student and Indie Dev Conference was a big success
Yesterday we partnered with Epic Games, Overclockers UK, Flix Interactive and Staffordshire University to deliver the first student and indie game conference. More than 20 industry experts gather to speak to over 270 independent and aspiring developers about a wide variety of business focused talks.
Session across the day covered areas such as routes to funding, growing an established studio, creative game design, developing your PR and Player strategy and emerging business models. The conference attracted key industry players to speak including Ukie Board member and Chair of the Ukie Developer Group Ella Romanos, Jon Hare of B.U.G.S and Sensible Software fame, BAFTA Breakthrough Brit and Modern Dream co-founder Oliver Clarke and Media Molecule Lead Artist Richard Franke.
We have had an incredibly positive response from both the speakers and all the students/developers who attended. The talks were all recorded and I will make them available online to all of our Ukie Students once they are edited.
