University of Westminster flag

Date/time: Thursday 20 June 2013, 12-4pm.
Venue: Pavilion, 115 New Cavendish Street

All students are invited to our Cavendish Campus to try out a range of games designed and developed by students on our BSc Multimedia Computing, BSc Computer Games Development, and BA in Politics and International Relations courses.

If you're a Level 5 student thinking about your final-year project, you'll find plenty of ideas and inspiration at the event - you'll have the chance to see and play high-quality games developed for previous final-year projects.

There will also be a number of board games designed by students from the Department of Politics and International Relations that could be developed as electronic games.

One of the games to be featured at the event is the mobile game “London Riots”, which has been developed in collaboration by students studying Multimedia Computing and Politics & International Relations.

Light refreshments and nibbles will be available.
