Hangar 13Developers of Mafia 3
Organised with Hangar 13 to provide mentors, judges and prizes for students that participated at the Gay(M) Jam.
Hi there, my name is Marc Walker and I'm currently a 2nd year Student at the University of Brighton studying Computer Science Games, my lifelong goal is to become a Game Developer after I graduate. Ever since attending University I have been actively involved learning the fundamentals of game development/design, picking up the necessary technical and programming skills in various OOP languages like Java, C++ and C# where I have produced VR, Mobile and Web games individually or within groups during my time at University. My extracurricular activities involve collaborating with fellow students in Game Jams where I'm also a Co-Founder and the first presiding President of the massively successful Game Jam Society.
Check out the Games I've made and collaborated with people on.
Here are some of the Game Jams I have helped organise for students at the University with the Game Jam Society as well participate in.
Take a look at what AAA Game studios have said about my endeavours with the Game Jam Society
“We’re really happy to support the University of Brighton with this competition. It highlights exactly why we chose Brighton for the location of our new studio – the city is home to a diverse, open-minded group of people and speaking as someone from the LGBTQ+ community myself, it’s exactly the sort of thing I would have loved to see my university get behind back when I was completing my degree. Congratulations on a job well done and we'll hopefully be seeing a lot more of you as our studio looks to build close ties with Brighton university.”
“Studio Gobo and Electric Square are incredibly proud to have partnered with the University of Brighton for its first-ever GAY[M] Jam. We as an employer are passionate about diversity and inclusiveness, so we're excited to have such a proactive and fun way of observing LBGTQ+ History month. Over the course of the weekend, we had various volunteer mentors spending time with the jammers and were really astounded with the level of innovation, boldness, and passion on display! This industry is a place for everybody, so this event was an important message to promote inclusiveness and one we look forward to continuing our partnership within the future.”
These are some of the establishments I have collaborated with while at University.
