Why Game LAB TM?
We noticed that the environment in Timisoara, Romania is searching for something to help and encourage students to network and develop projects outside the university. Searching for a bridge between the academic environment and the companies. We chose Timișoara instead of Bucharest or any other city because of the lack of big companies in the area. We know that might be a disadvantage but, our purpose is to help to educate and creating qualified personal. We want to attract big companies to the area and also create indie companies.
Okay, but why should I care?
Uhm, because it’s awesome?
Because it’s an unique program in Romania, a great way to get into the industry.. For sure you already realised that.
We’re teaming you with experts in different fields, giving you a place to work. Not to say that we are organizing cool events * some exclusive * + you get access to all the sessions about gaming?
Is this actually helpful?
If having a proof that you can work in a team, you know the process that is required to build games* and also getting to know network with a lot of industry experts is helpful. Then pretty much yes.
*having another demo in your portfolio.
