Experimental Game Cultures Game Dev Studio visits guided by SUBOTRON
The participants of the tours will get the chance to experience different fields of work in game development and usage, gaining insight to the daily routine as well as the professional environment. The fields of work are explained by studio members in informal conversations on the basis of concrete projects and the (team)work is outlined. Which educations did the staff complete? How is a game produced? Does it just take a couple of desks or does it require a tightly organised office structure? What do contracts look like? These and other questions are answered in short company presentations and subsequent individual discussions. The visit is also initiator of valuable first contacts for internships and potential employers.
