Brains Eden Gaming Festival



Brains Eden Gaming Festival is an epic celebration of young games creators and the world-leading games studios based here in Cambridgeshire. Watch the action from 2014 here.

Each year, we welcome students, academics and games developers from across the UK, Europe and in 2014 we welcomed our first Canadian team from Nova Scotia. Make sure you have the dates for the four-day extravaganza in your diary!

When: Friday 26th - Monday 29th June
Where: Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge UK
This year Brains Eden includes brilliant elements such as:

  • Talks - bringing together leading industry speakers to discuss cutting edge developments, technologies and approaches in the sector - more details to follow!
  • A massive Games Jam, in which over a 150 games course students will take part
  • Return of BE. Mobile from our sponsors ARM – offering unique tips, online lessons and help for young games developers to make games for mobile devices

The festival culminates in a large Games Artwork exhibition in the Ruskin Gallery, a Careers Clinic and Awards Ceremony to recognise the innovative games produced over the weekend.

Brains Eden Gaming Festival is now 7 years old and continues to be a dynamic, vibrant, must-attend event run by Games Eden, the computer games developer network for the East of England and Creative Front Cambridgeshire. It would not be possible without backing from key industry leaders such as Playstation FirstGuerrilla Cambridge, ARM, Jagex, Frontier Developments and national support from UnityBAFTA and Ukie.

The festival is hugely popular and places for student teams are limited so if you are a course tutor, whether it be games-related or not, register now!

Brains Eden is kindly supported through Anglia Ruskin University and leading research institute Cultures of the Digital Economy (CoDE).
