For ease of access we have decided to upload all of the talk videos from London 2019 onto this page. This was an incredible conference with some very insightful talks.

On April 17th game dev students, challenge participants and finalists, academics, studio representatives and industry heavyweights all descended on Sheffield for one of the UK’s biggest student-oriented game development events, the Search For A Star and Sumo Digital Rising Star Finals Day, created and run by Grads in Games.
The University of Brighton partners with local AAA developers to host Brighton’s first GAY(M) JAM, a collaborative competition celebrating inclusion and diversity within gaming.
Dr Panagiotis Fotaris, Games course leader at the University of Brighton commented “With such huge potential as a storytelling format, games are a great opportunity to respectfully explore and depict various identities and orientations. The GAY(M) JAM allowed participants to develop games that promoted LGBTQ+ inclusivity and depicted sexuality in a positive way.”
