Last night I had a great email, out of the blue, from Iain Donald who is part of a new venture at Abertay University that is looking to help provide assistance to SME’s starting game projects. Iain was the QA lead on Ruffian’s Crackdown 1&2 and the project manager, Mike Enoch, was their tech lead. Once Crackdown 2 was completed they left to begin this exciting new venture with Abertay University.
So not only is this an interesting funding avenue, it’s supported by people with plenty of AAA experience and they want to help you benefit from it! What more could you ask for, especially if you’ve been wondering where to start out in the games industry.
