When?

Date: 17th of November

Time: 12:00PM - 2:00PM (Sydney time)

Location: Online (via Discord)

Stay tuned for more updates.

Alumni Panel

The first hour will consist of a panel of BSc in Games Development Alumni from various year levels (2016/2017/2018/2019).

During this time, our panelists will share their journeys after finishing their studies at UTS.

Game Demos

The second hour will be a demonstration of all the games created in Game Design Studio 2, a final year subject where students work in collaboration with the Music and Sound Design cohort following Agile Project Management Principles to create innovative and unique commercial-quality video games.

Also on show, this year’s game made by the Playmakers Dev Team – a group of 14 students from the Playmakers Student Society who have worked on an extracurricular project since May 2020

These games along with other on-demand content will also be available for our invitees to access from the comfort of their own home.
