The 26 training days are held by seasoned gaming industry veterans with plenty of real-life experience in game development. Trainings have been updated based on the feedback received from companies and earlier participants.
Training days handle e.g. the following topics:
- Game programming
- Designing games
- Game engines
- Game mechanics and artificial intelligence
- Game graphics
- Game economy
- Community management
What are the requirements? Can I apply?

Own game projects are a big plus. If you have a portfolio of your work available, please include a link in your application.
You can apply if you are unemployed, freshly graduated, under the threat of being laid off, temporarily laid off or in a job not related to your education.
