WHAT IS THE GAMES HUB?

The Games Hub is a unique and award-winning game development studio based in Colchester, Essex. We run a free 40-week programme which is open to all aspiring games and app developers, from students building their first games to professionals with years of industry experience who want to try their hand at developing a game independently.

Based in our shared studio space, you work together as part of a team to plan and develop a game idea while also learning more about games development and the business of gaming.

By the end of the programme, you and your team will have not only developed a game or prototype, but will also have put together a business plan and pitch presentation.


BUSINESS MENTORING FROM THE GAMES INDUSTRY

As part of our programme you’ll get expert mentoring and support from some of the best people in the business world, and in computer games development. Contributors from the gaming industry include:

  • Microsoft
  • Dlala Studios
  • Square Enix
  • Tower Studios

You’ll also be working closely with veteran games developer Steven Huckle, founder of The Games Hub, who brings more than 30 years’ experience to the studio.


SUCCESS STORIES

In the hub’s first three rounds we’ve seen more than 50 people come through the programme. Five teams have set up their own award-winning games development companies, and we think their work says more about the success of the studio than we ever could – so take a look at what they’re working on. We think you’ll be blown away.
