Brains Eden 2014

July 4th - July 7th, 2014, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK

Brains Eden 2014

The annual celebration of young games creators and Cambridge-based studios returns

Each year, Brains Eden welcomes students, academics and games developers from across the UK, Europe and 2014 will see its first Canadian team from Nova Scotia.

This year Brains Eden includes:

  • BAFTA supported Brains Symposium - featuring a keynote address by a UK industry figurehead, more details to follow.

  • A massive Games Jam, in which over a 150 games course students will take part

  • Return of BE. Mobile and the launch of BE. Mobile Academy from 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 6 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 ARM, Guerrilla Cambridge, Frontier Developments, Jagex and national support from BAFTA 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 by VIVID (Value Increase by Visual Design), a cross-border network project supported by the European Interreg IV A Programme "2 Mers Seas Zeeën" and leading research institute Cultures of the Digital Economy (CoDE).
