Dutch Game Garden invites ambitious students to participate in Summer Game Dev! Summer Game Dev is a week where game development students and business students from various universities work together on a playable game.
Summer Game Dev is all about learning practical skills you don’t get taught in university. Besides developing a game together with your team, you work on a business plan and up your game industry knowledge. During the week, you increase your skills, you get valuable contacts in the industry, and you learn about commercializing your own game concept. On Monday, we make team based on the roles of the participants. Ideally, a group consists of a programmer, designer, artist, producer/business person, and an audio person.
Experts from the games industry will coach you. We visit a game studio, and listen to talks about PR, sales, publishing, business models, and how to run a company. At the end of the week, a jury will judge all the games and the pitches. The winning team gets a prize. Plus, you might make some new friends!
Students from business programs welcome! There’s a special program for you during the week.

Where? Utrecht region, TBA
