Talent Arcade

If you’re a budding games developer, writer, designer, artist or even just have a passing interest in the field this coming Monday is your lucky day. Channel 4’s 4Talent Scotland hits the Edinburgh Interactive Festival with a packed programme of workshops to help rocket new video gaming talent through the stratosphere.

The day will be split into various lectures and workshops given by leaders in the industry:

The Knowledge: Learn how to climb the career ladder, or finance and publish your own games.
The Kit: Get tooled up with the latest hardware and software to keep your work ahead of the game.
The Brief: Rise to a real-life creative challenge to win GamePlay training and coveted work placements with Scottish games employers TPLD, 3MRT, Tag Games and Cohort Studios.

Artists, programmers, designers, writers – if you want to get onto the next level in your gaming career, get along to Talent Arcade. Monday 11th August, 10:00 – 20:00, Edinburgh International Conference Centre. It’s free to attend but there’s only one day left to register. For free tickets and information, visit: 4Talent Scotland.

You can also email email [email protected] with ‘Talent Arcade registration’ as the subject. Registration is for the full event and entitles you to attend all the sessions.

    If I’d known or looked into this sooner I’d definately be interested in attending, but it’s great to see Channel 4 backing this event for those going.

    I do wonder what they’ll say about the hardware and software for games creation, the software seems to have a tendancy to cost thousends of £’s which is a big problem for anyone just wanting to try it out and learn how to use it.
