On the 29th of February 2020, we will see the 7th annual games development conference held in Wales previously known as the InitGame Conference, now re-branded as part of the Level Up series of events; Level Up Conference 2020.
Level Up Conference 2020 shall be held within the Nick Whitehead Theatre, Wrerxham Glyndwr University, LL11 2AW in North Wales and is a free event for any budding or veteran games developers in Wales and the rest of the UK. This is a joint event from the Welsh Government, Tranzfuser, Games Talent Wales, the British Computing Society (BCS) and Games Wales.
There shall be guest speakers from various areas within the video game industry including Jasper Barnes, Talent Acquisition Manager for veteran games studio Team17 Digital Ltd, known for the classic Worms series, The Escapists series and the Overcooked series amongst many more fantastic games. Head of Outreach and Talent at the UK Games Talent, who run the UK Games Fund, Deborah Farley will also be there to hold a talk, as well as several home grown games developers from Wales.
This is an amazing opportunity for games developers to gain insight in what it takes to receive major funding required to develop a video game in Wales, which is paramount in today’s growing Welsh gaming industry. Hopefully we will see more games developers be able to use information gained today as a way to fund working as a games studio full time.
It will also be a fantastic event to mingle and socialise with other members of the games industry, from various talented students, past and present as well as veterans and experts. Expect to gain a lot of knowledge through the various master classes available on the day as well.
