Sixth Formers to Participate in Video Game Design Project

City and Islington Sixth Form College are offering students the opportunity to try their hand at games design. In an exciting new development, the Sixth Form’s Careers Department, in collaboration with Fusebox Games, have organised a competition to allow students to develop their skills in creativity and teamwork.

Fusebox are known for their hit publications, ‘Love Island: The Game’ and ‘The X Factor Life’.

The winning team or individual will be given the opportunity to go to a real game development studio and meet the professional game designers, developers, and 3D and technical artists who bring games to life.

For those looking to go into the industry or just to build a varied portfolio of accomplishments, the 2020 Games Design Competition will provide a practical route into the world of work. Entrants are expected to put together a supporting Game Design Document, detailing the features and game mechanics they would like to include in their finished product.

Participants are encouraged, where possible, to work together in teams. The original brief notes that video game companies are making increasing use of remote working, and that the competition will provide useful experience in online collaboration.

For more information on the competition, students should email joanne.bishop@candi.ac.uk

The final submission date for all entries is 5 June 2020.
