When I started teaching on the new Games Development Course at Cambridge Regional College one of the things that struck me was that I needed the help of the games industry if the course was to be a success. Games development is a fast moving sector, where the technology and software changes regularly. It’s also a sector where young people have a keen interest as consumers but limited understanding of what it really means to create a successful game.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has opened entries for the 2018 BAFTA Young Game Designers (YGD) competition which aims to inspire the UK’s game creators of the future by giving young people the chance to design and make their own game. Entries are now open and will close on Wednesday 25 April.
