Game Academy is a world renowned games contest for the best of Abertay University Students. The contest introduces top students to great industry contacts, as well as giving the winners a chance to attend international trade shows to demo their games.
In 2017 Dare to be Digital was re-booted and rebranded as Dare Academy. 16 amazing Abertay University student teams applied for the contest to create a commercial and innovative game. The prizes included 3 international trips for the top 3 teams, advice on creating a business and for the top 6 teams a chance to demo their games at EGX.
The contest attracted some great industry judges and mentors including people from Xbox, Sony and Channel 4 Games.
The students themselves thought it was a great opportunity to meet industry and learn what it is like to work in a team environment.
