Course Leader for Computer Games Development Lesley Morrison said:

This intensive but fun experience was a great way for students to collaborate in a subject area they all have a passion for. To have so many people involved, not only from students and staff, but guests from the gaming industry and local businesses gave the event an extremely high level of credibility.”
