Games Academy will be held on September 1, 2 and 3 at the EUNEIZ university site and advance registration is required at [email protected]
The third edition of the F2P Campus, an initiative backed by the Provincial Council of Álava, the Basque Government and EUNEIZ University, which is the first free-to-play videogame campus, is organizing free workshops in the first few days of September aimed at anyone aged 14 and over.
The initiative, known as Games Academy, which has already been running in Amurrio, Llodio and in Gasteiz itself in recent months, aims to raise awareness of videogame development as a career path among young people. Previous experience in this field is not required in order to participate, since the goal is to promote the videogame industry in the Basque Country and generate new vocations in the younger age group.
The sessions will provide an easy and straightforward approach to the world of videogame development using the professional tool Unity. Participants will be able to create their first levels, mechanics and menus using very visual tools, and thereby have an initial contact with this industry and make a videogame from scratch. The workshops are free of charge, but advance registration is required at [email protected] giving the participant’s name and age, as well as their preferred days.
The training will be given by Fernando Ruíz Calderón, a videogame professional with more than 22 years of experience and Art Director of the Vitorian videogame developer Evil Zeppelin.
Dates: September 1, 2 and 3 (the content is the same for all three days) Time: From 9:00 to 13:00
Place: EUNEIZ University, Paseo de la Biosfera 6, Vitoria-Gasteiz Requirements: Age 14 and over
