BA (hons) Games Design & Art Events 2018

Games Design & Art have a host of events coming up in 2018.

Following is a list of events throughout this year from BA (Hons) Games Design & Art students. Please save the dates, all welcome and please do bring friends too. Our events are all about you the player and although you dont need to be a gamer many are user testing sessions, so come prepared to interact with the games and the gamemakers, however we try and make it feel a little like a party and this normally means include nibbles and drinks are freely on hand to help elicit feedback. No RSVP required, just arrive.
