Find out what it’s like to work in a Console Game Studio.

George Prosser will talk about starting out in commercial game development. George is a recent Cambridge alumnus and was an intern with Gobo before joining full time once he graduated.

James Callin, Technical Director and co-founder of Studio Gobo will talk about the difference between playing with a game and just playing a game. In particular about how breaking away from rigid-body mechanics has allowed Gobo to build systems (or ‘toys’) with more emergent behaviour.

There should be plenty of time for questions, and we’ll also be providing lunch.
