Gamex runs from November 4 to 7 in Kista Expo Center and is Sweden’s first game show. It is a meeting place for everyone who want to keep tabs on the latest in the gaming industry and who love the console and computer games, accessories and applications. Futuregames Academy is there and will showcase its student projects Ayla and Bloom.
Play our games
“At the Futuregames Academy’s booth you will see and play the games that the students made, who has been involved in contests and win cool prizes (one of the groups’ games Ayla came second in Indiedbs’s contest and won a Unity Pro license worth $ 1200) http://www.indiedb.com/games/ayla ” Almir Listo, Project Manager at Futuregames Academy
“On Gamex I will show up Bloom, a game that I worked on along with seven classmates. Bloom is set in a fantasy world where the player takes on the role of Lilith, a teenage girl who grew up in a mysterious order who’s function is to the utmost secrecy guarding the remains of the Garden of Eden. The jewel in this collection is an ancient tree that still bears moisture. These fruits contain incredible magical powers, but when things start to go wrong in the world, the order refuses to use these forces because they do not want to mix in secular affairs. Our teen heroine Lilith sees things differently, she decides to steal the magic tree and go out into the world to set things right” Daniel Nordgren, Game Design, FG09, Futurgames Academy
Futuregames will lead to a job in half the time
At Futuregames Academy, you learn how to become a 3D artist or game designer under international industry standards and after only 60 weeks at the school jump right out to the 30-week long internship at game companies. Within one and a half year you will be at a game company and work with an active commercial production.
“The best thing about Futuregames is that it leads to a job in half the time compared to the equivalent university educations, we have a fantastic cooperation with Bergh’s School of Communication, great location in Stockholm and an incredible network of gaming companies in the world” Almir Listo, Project Manager at Futuregames Academy
“Without my education at Futuregames I would never have had the necessary qualifications to take a place in Sweden’s gaming industry. For me it has affected my entire current and future career and hence life. With Futuregames I’ve also gotten friends that are now valuable contacts at other game companies around Sweden.” Kit Eklöf, former Futuregames student and currently Game Designer at Bajoum Interactive
