This is the first Game Republic event of 2015 and features Ste Curran from Agency For Games - a consultancy that helps "bridge the gap between what your game is and what it can be," that has worked with clients including Mike Bithell (Thomas Was Alone, Volume) and Square-Enix. Ste was a writer for EDGE Magazine, worked on numerous games developments and also still hosts the One Life Left radio show with Simon Byron and Ann Scantlebury.
We'll also hear from Game Republic member John Sanderson about his animation/sound studio Pit Stop Productions and what they can do for your game.
Afterwards we'll be having drinks/networking.
