Join us on Wednesday evening and meet alumni working in the games industry. The event is held in our high-tech cyber-futuristic virtual reality, where we will be joined by industry professionals from across the world. They have all been where you are, now. They have all studied at GAME, graduated and gone on to great things.
So clear your calendar, stock up on the glögg and come meet our people at Blizzard, King, Runaway Play, Spiele-Palast, Redbeet Interactive, Creative Assembly, Fatshark, from the comforting corona-safety of your own home.
