Games Now!

Games Now! is an open lecture series on the dominant topics and emerging trends in games. In GN! we dig deeper to what is current at the game scene – and what will happen in the near future. The topics are curated in collaboration with Finland’s game industry veterans and our top companies. Our guest speakers are industry leaders, experienced researchers and other inspiring individuals providing their insights and advise for anyone interested to learn. The lecture series run by Aalto University is open for anyone to attend. You do not have to be enrolled to a school to join our community. However, if you are working on a formal degree in games, there are several universities and game schools that include GN! as part of their curricula.
