Game development is a difficult gig to get into, and with student intake arguably outpacing the growth of the Australian games industry, it might be about to get tougher. That's why Halfbrick Cubed, an initiative started by Fruit Ninja creators Halfbrick, is such a valuable idea.
Halfbrick Cubed is a monthly gathering taking place at Queensland University of Technology designed to give students access to industry knowledge from the studios dotted around Brisbane and Australia. The first event is set to be hosted by Phil Larsen, Halfbrick's Chief Marketing Officer, but according to Phil himself, he's keen to get as many industry voices involved as possible, not just employees from Halfbrick. The aim, he said, is to bring "fresh discussion and new experiences" to up and coming developers.
The first event takes place at QUT Gardens Point campus on October 1, starting at 6pm.
