EGX Rezzed 2019 - a huge consumer facing, computer game show, took place recently in London and some of our IT & Gaming students went along for the day. There are two shows a year, with this one being mainly focused on indie games from smaller studios. The lectures given in the main stages were from industry heavy hitters though with everything from Guild Wars, Final Fantasy, Quake and more represented in some way.
Across the three day event, almost 60 students from four different courses attended the show in London. Primarily, they created artwork of cosplayers who joined us in our area on iPad using ArtRage app, in some cases using Logitech styli and with Paint 3D on HP laptop. HP were kind enough to lend us 6 laptops for the event.
Whilst at the show, the students spoke to the producer of some of the Final Fantasy games, went to career talks and portfolio revue sessions and more. Many of them joined in with the open to all competitive game competitions, and two won £100 headphones!
The students worked phenomenally well at the show, drawing, chatting to people, explaining what they were doing and so on. Everyone said they thoroughly enjoyed it and asked when the next one was - due to take place in October 2019!
