"The LGCF will bring those people together with the companies who need them, and we hope that the sessions programme will make the path to a career in videogames clearer for our attendees."

The London Game Career Fair takes place on October 3rd and 4th at the Cafî Royal on Regent Street, and offers the chance for students, graduates and creative talent to meet and learn from veterans of the games industry.

"Recruitment is a big issue for us and other development studios and the LGCF is a fantastic opportunity for us to meet and talk to potential new recruits," said Philip Oliver, CEO and co-founder of Blitz Games.

"There's a wide range of careers now available and the industry is maturing in ways that will place it at the heart of the entertainment business of the future," he added.
