"Concept To Console" by Blitz Games

Warwick Video Game Design SocietyBlitz Games

"Concept to Console" - A talk by Blitz Games


Thursday 20th October (Week 4), 6.30pm, LIB2 (Library Building)


FREE entry - All students and academics invited

The Warwick Video Game Design Society (link) are hosting a talk next Thursday to be given by Blitz Games (link) on the subject of game design.

The talk will cover the history of Blitz Games and the legacy that the Oliver twins have laid down in the history of video games as a whole, the process of getting a video game from the beginning to the end of a cycle (quite literally, "Concept to Console"), and also an introduction on how to get into the industry. The talk as a whole should last around 45 minutes.

The talk will feature Phillip Oliver, CEO of Blitz Games and co-creator of the Dizzy series and a celebrity in the world of game design.

Blitz Games are an independent game developer based in Leamington Spa, and have worked on a number of games in recent times including Pac-Man World 3, Fuzion Frenzy and the highly anticipated Possession (under their mature games label, Volatile Games). They are one of the top 5 independent game developers in Europe, with over 150 staff employed, and the talk is an ideal opportunity to make contacts with them – they are currently making a large recruitment drive.

This talk will cater for everyone interested in game design and media production as a whole, and will be particularly useful for anyone looking to go into the games industry after they graduate. All students and staff are welcome.
