Brains Eden 2018, UK’s largest student games festival
One of the top games events in the UK, Brains Eden, is set to kick off next month and celebrate its 10th anniversary, in the games and technology hot-bed Cambridge.
Hosted at Anglia Ruskin University, the four-day festival which centres on a 48-hour games jam with a surprise theme, has sold out of team places, making it the biggest jam to date. University teams from the UK, across Europe and as far afield as China, will be travelling to Cambridge to compete in the event.
Completely backed and supported by organisations in the games, technology and education industries, Playstation, Frontier Developments, ARM, Cambridge Assessment English, Jagex, Codemasters and Sumo Digital (just to name a few) will all be present at this year’s festival. Alongside some of the biggest industry names will be a full roster of mentors, specializing in everything from environment artwork to sound production, helping the student teams along the way.
