Join us at the finale of Brains Eden 2015
Brains Eden is a fast-paced and highly creative gaming festival that challenges designers, coders, creatives and artists to develop new games in 48 hours.

On Monday morning, just before lunch, everyone is welcome to attend and hear inspirational talks from industry leaders:
Claire Blackshaw, Senior Online Consultant at Sony, on “How not to be useless”
Let’s face it, there is nothing more annoying than being bossed about by someone who is useless? Or being supplied with a junior to help your deadline who ends up costing your team more time. Here are a few quick tips and starting points to build some hard skills which make you more useful on the ground and able to deliver a solid product. The little things that old studio hands take for granted. So some tips for designers, artists and coders without any sugar coating on how to be trench ready.
Joesph Humfery, Co-Founder of inkle, on "80 Days: Whipping up a storm"
How did a tiny independent studio end up developing a game that received TIME Magazine's Game of the Year, and nominations for four BAFTAs? 80 Days was the work of Inkle's Jon Ingold and Joseph Humfrey, and freelance writer Meg Jayanth and their success can be attributed in part to their development methodology: a relentless emphasis on focus, efficiency and quality, and well judged approach to marketing from day one. But can such an approach be reproduced or repeated? What can small studios or independent developers learn?
Jon Torrens, Communications Coach, on “Critical Hit! Building on your team's story”
Do you feel nervous when you meet potential employers? I can help you with that. In my talk I'll cover how to:
- Articulate concepts succinctly
- Use your story to connect with people
- Capitalise on your gaming abilities
- Deal with nerves when talking
Everyone who has signed up for Brains Eden can attend the talks. Talks Only tickets will allow entry to the Talks but also play the games and the awards ceremony.
