Game Republic

Game Changers Event showcases opportunities with Sony and achievements in York

Over 60 Game Republic members and invited guests attended Game Republic’s Game Changers lunch on 12th September to meet Spencer Low, Producer, Strategic Content for Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe and to hear useful insights into IP from Louise Handley of 3volution.

The Game Changers lunchtime event provided the Game Republic developers with key information on how best to work with Sony, the type of support that exists for game studios publishing and funding and the potential of the 20 million subscribers on PlayStation Plus.

Game Republic’s Jamie Seftojamien (pictured left trying out some VR at the event) commented “It was great to see so many of our developers getting to meet Spencer and share their games, and getting tips on how to approach IP from Louise. Being able to work with the team at DC Labs in York also provided our members with insights into the work from artificial intelligence to business resilience.”
