Game Republic welcomes games legend Philip Oliver to York

Game Republic’s next business event is on Thursday 18th April at York St John University, featuring games industry legend Philip Oliver (creator of the classic Dizzy games and co-founder of Blitz Games with his brother Andrew Oliver).

Philip (pictured here on the right) will be discussing his 30+ year career in the games industry, plus provide some useful advice for games developers through the new consultancy Game Dragons.

We’ll also hear from Noirin Carmody, co-founder of Revolution and Ukie board member about the current games industry and Damian Murphy from the University of York about the XR Stories project with games funding for developers.

Refreshments will be provided and there will also be drinks and networking afterwards. Game Republic members go free! Big thanks to York St John University for partnering with us on this event. More info on the event and how to sign up isĀ here.
