A free game industry Twitch event: as a result of the pandemic, all recruiting events for graduating game devs have been canceled so Edmar volunteered to help produce a Twitch show this Friday hosted by Nvidia's Julian Huguet to help these developers show & tell their final game projects and connect with industry professionals and recruiters. Julian will play 8 games, including 2 VR titles, and interview the teams (some teams are looking for a publisher, too). The games have been developed by groups of 12 for one year: 31 programmers; 25 artists; 39 designers; and 17 producers. Here is the RSVP (please feel free to share):
Julian Huguet is the host of the PC Gaming YouTube channel NVIDIA GeForce from its launch to today. It now boasts over 500 thousand subscribers who tune in to watch in-depth discussions of cutting-edge computer hardware and graphic rendering technologies.
