What do we run?
We run a large variety of events in the society, from workshops to gaming get-togethers! Primarily online, here are the kind of events you can look out for:
Game Days - PC or console gamer? Meet new people, hang out with friends and play a variety of different games!
Workshops - Looking for a challenge? Come along to one of our workshops to learn some tips and tricks that’ll help improve your game-making knowledge.
Demo Days - Choose your character! Show off your game and get useful feedback from peers and alumni alike!
VR Spotlights - Level Up! Try out new VR experiences, whether you've used VR before or you're a complete newbie.
Collaborations - Prefer multiplayer instead? We are also doing collaborative events with other societies that share our passion for games.
Game Jams - Your chance to broaden your skills as a developer! Whether you’re in a team or going solo, create a game from start to finish within a set time limit! What will you create?
Other/General Socials (drinking and non-drinking) - These kinds of events can be anything from meeting up at the pub to watching movies at the cinema.
Due to current social distancing measures in place, as well as ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic, physical meet-ups are more difficult to prepare. This is why most of our events are mainly online for now.
These events are usually held fortnightly (every 2 weeks), but do check back here or on our social media to stay updated on the latest!
Throughout the year we have been doing charity events to support our charity of choice - Special Effect, a charity helping people who live with physical disabilities to play video games, providing more accessibility and a better gaming experience.
Any support is greatly appreciated. We will continue to hold more charity events in the future, so stay tuned!
