The Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy in Moscow in partnership with the Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (Ukie), Universal University and Scream School is launching a series of games industry inspirational talks that will take place in November - December 2021 as part of the international PlayUK Russia programme.
The United Kingdom is a powerhouse in games development and publishing. From the early days of bedroom coders through to the multinational studios of today, the UK has been at the forefront of games development for over 40 years.
The UK games industry draws its strength from a unique combination of creative thinking and technical prowess. Add to this the outstanding quality of games courses at world-class Universities in the UK and the opportunities for cross-industry development with globally leading animation and film sectors and you can see why the UK is home to 20 of the world’s top 100 games studios.
At the heart of the games industry, not only in the UK but also in Russia and around the world, are the incredible people that lead and inspire games development and publishing.
In this series of events, you will hear from five industry leaders from the UK games industry. They will share their stories, their passions, their successes, and their failures. In many cases, they are legends of the industry. But each and every one of them is still at the top of their game, creating amazing, enthralling experiences for the players of today.
