Meet the SAE team attending Brains Eden 2019

24 Jun 2019

SAE London are proud to be sending an amazing team to Brains Eden 2019, the UK’s largest international students games jam, now in its 11th year at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.

The event, which takes place from 28 June - 1 July, is supported by some of the biggest games, education, entertainment and technology companies in the world.

SAE are sending a mix of Game Art and Animation students, Games Programming and Audio students to the event; a team that boasts the perfect combination of technical capability and creativity.

Wojciech Zurowski is a first year Game Art Animation student. He said: “I love Game Art and Animation because it's a lot of fun. I am a creative person who loves to do something new, such as create a 3D model. I hope after this two year journey with SAE I'll have an opportunity to start working for CD Projekt Red, Techland, or other games company. I've learned a lot already and I've found the thing I want to do for the rest of my life."

Adam Hajdu is a first year Games Programming student. He has been seeing the entire evolution of the video game industry and always wants to be a part of it. When he isn’t glued to a computer screen, he spends time outside in nature and/or drawing.

Viktoria Berta is a first year Games Programming student. She said: “I like to play video games and I am always amazed and what kind of changes are going on in the games industry. By drawing, I create characters for my world. I can show what I can do; I have my world and the characters and I can make them alive and create a game.”

Allen Lindenberg is a first year Audio student also attending the event.

   
 

"THE COURSE IS SUPER ENJOYABLE AND HELPFUL FOR SETTING US UP TO GO INTO INDUSTRY, AND IT'S ALWAYS FUN MEETING PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD AT BRAINS EDEN."

- CONNOR SWANNELL, GAMES PROGRAMMING STUDENT

   

 

Connor Swannell is a second year Games Programming student who attended Brains Eden last year as well. He said: “The course is super enjoyable and helpful for setting us up to go into industry, and it’s always fun meeting people from all over the world at Brains Eden.”

The team will be under the watchful guidance of Karsten Vermeulen, Games Programming lecturer at SAE London. Karsten said: “Brains Eden is the UK's largest student game jam, with students from all over the world attending annually to compete and make the best game possible. With so much support from the games and technology industry, this jam is crucial for students and a valuable learning experience for them, as they will no doubt take a wealth of knowledge home with them and have tons of fun making games.”

SAE wishes the team the very best of luck and has no doubt at all that they will return victorious!
