Results of the 2nd video game development workshop Animafest 2014

We are proud of the successful organization of another video game development workshop (June 4th - June 7th, 2014), which was jointly organized by Animafest Zagreb, Academy of Fine Arts, and Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) of University of Zagreb.

The workshop was attended by 15 students of University of Zagreb, who formed 4 small teams, each with a task to create their own video game. The workshop was opened by Mr. Lovro Nola (game design Machina) who gave an insight into Croatian game development industry. The speech was then followed by team gathering, brainstorming and game development. Third day of workshop welcomed visitors, academic staff from FER and visitors from start-up company divIT, who watched game demostrations.

The results of the workshop were projected during the closing ceremony of Animafest Zagreb 2014. Some shapshots of the working atmosphere can be also found on Animafest Zagreb FB gallery.

We would like to thank FER Faculty management team for providing us facilities to host the workshop at FER.
