Training events and coaching

Interested in the gaming industry?

Join a network of people interested in games and the gaming industry and get to know the field from a business perspective. The aim is to bring together people with the ideas and enthusiasm to develop the game business further.

You can participate no matter what your area of interest in the gaming industry – design, graphics, coding, sound design, or something else. You can join either as an individual, in which case we will help you find a team, or as an existing team.

We shall proceed in two stages. The first stage includes five networking and workshop events. The events have different themes that deal with various aspects of gaming teams and business. The second stage focuses on a team-specific training programme. The teams will be assembled from the participants of the networking and workshop events. Participation is free of charge.

The first stage is facilitated by Jussi Autio, Creative Director at Resistance Games. He is a founder of Oulu Game Lab and the creator of many PC and mobile games for various companies. He has also been sparring teams and companies in their early stages both in Finland and abroad. A group of coaches from Resistance Games will join the training stage, one per team.
