Course: Computer Science for Games
Business: Arkode Games
Joshua signed up for the Work for Yourself sandwich year programme through his course to pursue building an indie games development business. The brand Arkode not only aims to make simple and fun games but also drive ethical employment within an industry notorious for exploitative employment practices.
“My business, Arkode, has been slowly growing, and we’ve been working our first game while documenting the development process on social media. Recently I’ve been expanding our team with help from other students and plan on releasing our project within a two year period.”
“The Enterprise Team provided a truly amazing space for young entrepreneurs to come together and collaborate on ideas, regardless of their individual businesses. I really benefited from the workshops offered when it came to navigating the tough legal areas of the games industry that are rarely talked about on my course.”
