By now, everyone who applied to Futuregames2015 should have received replies to their applications through Yh-guiden. Since the invites for interviews were sent out on monday, we have been receiving a lot of questions regarding the application process and what it takes to get accepted.
We had an astounding 450 applications this year and as the amount of applications increase, so does the average skill level. This means that the competition is harder, because we only have a limited amount of spots each year. Many of the applications that do get turned down did not get rejected because they weren’t qualified enough, but because someone else was slightly better suited.
Unfortunately, the overwhelming interest for our education also means that we can’t give feedback on each application, due to the massive time it would involve. You are, however, more than welcome to ask us personally about what makes a good application, or what you should focus more on next time, if you come to one of our events!
And if you didn’t get accepted into Futuregames this year, please don’t give up! We’ll still be here next year. Keep on making new things, it will help you develop and it will help us to see your potential! We need to see that this is something that you are really in to, and not just a work sample you created because you had to.
We want you to apply to Futuregames because you feel the way we do about making games: that it’s the best thing in the whole, wide world.
