Quotes

...thing with games is it can be more volatile, and you're really dependent on the talent: You lose them, and you're in a bad place," says Pidgeon. "Franchises are always worthwhile. As long as you continue to keep the quality and continue to develop it in line with expectations, it can be really valuable. It's guaranteed to sell. As long as there are millions of people playing it, they'll continue to play it. The games business is very hit-driven."
David Edwards, Senior lecturer in Game Design at Staffordshire University said "The games industry has changed a lot in recent years. There are now products and services available to students and graduates who wish to start their own games studios. This conference brings those students closer to the industry, to give them the business advice and inside information from those who have been there and done it. The event also gives an opportunity for Indie developers to network and explore more opportunities that are available to them from finance and funding, to business and commercial growth."
The Canada Media Fund, a proud partner of the event for many years, shares this view. " Canada's video game industry has forged a reputation for excellence. The whole world is watching our businesses and our talented professionals, who are known for their tremendous creativity. We are very proud to support such a vibrant and successful industry" said Valérie Creighton , president and CEO of CMF
...So, starting now, Unreal Engine 4 is free to use for colleges and universities,' the company explained in its announcement. "The engine can be installed and used on all school owned computers, and personal copies can be provided free of charge to all students enrolled in accredited video game development, computer science, art, architecture, simulation, and visualisation programs."
