Industry professionals from the likes of Ninja Theory and Sony Computer Entertainment are booked for talks at an upcoming three-day games education event.

The annual Brains Eden conference, set to run July 9th to 11th, will gather aspiring game developers with weathered pros at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.

The first two-days of the show will be centred on a student game jam – where game prototypes are conceived and built under a punishing 48 hour period – while the final day will be a more laid back affair with speaker sessions and roundtables.

Key developers from Ninja Theory, Jagex and Sony Computer Entertainment Cambridge Studio will each share their insight and experience.
