• Games Britannia REPLAYED - Sheffield's E3: Public days are 7th and 8th July

    Games Britannia is a week long videogames education and careers festival, taking place from 2 to 8 July at the MAGNA Science Adventure Centre, Sheffield, and will celebrate the strength of the UK industry and inspire the next generation of British videogame talent. The festival concludes with the Games Britannia: REPLAYED public weekend on 7th and 8th July.

    Dr Jake Habgood, senior lecturer on Sheffield Hallam's game development courses, said: "We want to engage children with the exciting opportunities that the videogame industry offers. Making games is a fantastic way to challenge and inspire students to study programming, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - as well as art, English and music - by applying them all creatively to a finished product.
    In the lead up to the event, teams of school children from across the region will compete to write, illustrate and compose ideas for a new video game based on one of the games industry's most iconic characters - Monty Mole. Ian Stewart, founder of the Sheffield-based game developer Gremlin Graphics who created the character, said "It's fantastic to see an initiative to rekindle the passion for programming at a young age. Many of my first employees learnt to program videogames on the computers they were first exposed to at school, and those skills helped to build the multi-billion dollar games industry we have today."

    The action packed weekend celebrating 40 years of the British gaming industry looks set to be a great way to sample new and old games alike.

    Namco will be displaying a host of their latest titles including Inversion, Tales of Graces F, Madagascar 3, Ni No Kuni and Witcher 2.

    Nintendo have also confirmed they will be bringing their Nintendo Unleashed Tour to the event, which will have the latest 3DS and Nintendo Wii games including New Super Mario Bros 2, Beat the Beat Rhythm Paradise, Kingdom Hearts 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising.

    Sumo Digital - the jewel in Sheffield' videogame development crown, responsible for the fantastic SEGA & Sonic All Star Racing, BBC Dr Who Adventure Games and Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast will be out in full force at Games Britannia: Replayed with their latest games.
