Join the team from the Aspect-funded Games Hub for this innovative event bringing together games produced by academics across the Aspect network.

The aim is to show the public that game development is one of the many forms that academic work can have. Hence encourage the public to explore academic courses where they could join or develop their own games ideas. There will be a short presentation of each of the games that are available at the event. Attendees will be able to enrol at a game table for a trial session.
