London, 31 August 2011 – Train2Game, provider of games industry training courses, will be taking Eurogamer 2011 by storm with its biggest presence yet, inviting anyone interested in joining the games industry to meet course advisors, current students and the brains behind the syllabus at the Train2Game stand. Furthermore, keep your eyes peeled for Train2Game students across the show floor in bright orange T-shirts and grab the opportunity to hear more about the course, its future and how you can join the industry.
As part of Train2Game’s commitment to face-to-face time as a key part of students’ education, the show also provides another opportunity for those currently enrolled to touch base with their tutors and meet fellow course mates in the flesh. Building on the strong community established on the Train2Game forums, when the students come together, it’s often a key catalyst for spin-off projects and experiments.
Train2Game will also be running a competition for students to share photos of themselves wearing their T-shirts and win an iPad 2 with accompanying iOS Developer account, kick-starting their ability to develop for the platform. In addition, every photo uploaded to the Train2Game Facebook page will result in a donation to the charity, Childsplay; a charity which donates consoles, games, books and toys to sick children in hospital.
Tony Bickley, Course Director for Train2Game, says, “Our students are the best out there – they love the industry, they know their stuff and one day they’ll be exhibiting at events like Eurogamer for themselves. In the meantime, we’re delighted to have hundreds of independent ambassadors representing us at the show, alongside our own stand for anyone who wants to learn more.”
