Around 250 budding game developers will gather at the University of Suffolk for the region’s biggest game development conference later this month.

Talks and demonstrations will be held to highlight the work of one of the fastest growing sectors in the East of England, home to over 150 independent games companies. Visitors can also find out about the latest innovations in virtual reality and mobile games.

Industry veteran Mark Backler, one of the event organisers, said: “There are a lot of game developers in East Anglia but there seems to be lots of disparate groups. We want to try and bring everyone together and help strengthen the games industry and community in the region.”

The event, named Game Anglia, takes place at the university’s Atrium building on Saturday, November 18, from 10am to 6pm. Prices range from £15 for students to £95 for VIP tickets.
