Meet The Studios: Mediatonic & The Chinese Room In thirty years, the games industry has become a true mass-market entertainment medium - bigger than movies and music combined. Games of all shapes and sizes entertain an estimated audience of 2.5 billion players worldwide.
Game studios based in and around Brighton have created some of the world’s biggest hits. It’s a thriving sector in our area and Wired Sussex would like to give you a chance to peek behind the curtain on who’s doing what, and how.
One of the greatest challenges in the games industry is recruitment. Specifically, finding enough people with the required skills to make the games. While other industries battle with coronavirus, the games industry continues like a juggernaut with an insatiable appetite for talent.
Programmers, artists, designers, product managers, analytic experts, testers and audio personnel are all being hired and skills are more transferable and easier to learn than any time before. Use our Meet the Studios events as an opportunity to find out exactly what skills are required to make games in 2020 and beyond.
This is a great opportunity to find out more about some of the UK's most exciting games studios, the games they produce, the roles that they hire and what they look for when recruiting.
Join this event to:
  • meet some of the most exciting games studios in Sussex
