Double Feature Friday : A Conversation With + Games Night

Double Feature Friday : A Conversation With and Games Night

VFS Game Design Teaching Assistant Isaac Calon came up with this great idea for the Students Only segment called “A Conversation With…” It kicks off with Brock Robin (veteran Relic Entertainment game designer and Game Design alumnus), who will be in the TV Studio to answer students’ questions. Students should come prepared! He’ll stick around until 7:00PM or until the questions stop.

Afterwards, the studio will be kept open to play board games, Magic, and Super Street Fighter 4 AE. We plan to start kicking people out at 9:00PM.

The plan is to bring in a new industry veteran once a month for another Double-Feature Friday. Andrés Molina, Programmer and Designer on the Company of Heroes 2 team at Relic is on deck for June.

Relic Entertainment announced the newest winner of the Brian Wood Memorial Internship, and it is Isaac Calon.

Relic, the Vancouver-based developers of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine among other popular games, offers the four-month internship to three graduating VFS Game Design students every year to honour and continue the legacy of Brian Wood, a Relic game designer who passed away in 2010.

Isaac graduated from the one-year program this past August. Prior to coming to VFS, he earned a Communications degree and worked as a writer and manager in corporate settings. At VFS, he was on the team behind R.O.Bit and helped create two other games during his year. His internship will place him as a production intern on an unannounced Relic title.
