Game Developer Week

by Videogame Development Club

Pinning for a career in the videogame industry?

Pinning for a career in the videogame industry? Or just curious about what goes on in the industry? For this entire week, Videogame Development Club is bringing local industry professionals from Billzzard and Obsidian to talk about game development, their experiences, and to answer your questions.

This event is extremely beneficial for MAISS members to know about, especially for those interested in going into game development. Despite the usual impression that game developers are all just programmers, there are numerous positions that will suit those interested in the integration of business and technology, for example, production, data analysis, marketing. Specifically, I think your club would be interested in the talks of Feargus Urquhart, the CEO of Obsidian, and Matthew Singh, the Lead Producer of South Park: The Stick of Truth, as they have positions which are essentially what MAISS members specialize in.

Due to the terms with the speakers' companies, we will not be able to record, take images, or post any speakers' talk anywhere, so we want to highly encourage actual attendance to get the most out of this speaker series.


Thank you,

Joseph Than
President, VGDC


P.S. Come early, we are expecting a full house!
