In the heart of Turkey’s live gaming sector, a revolution that blends art and technology is taking place. Over the past decade, Turkey has emerged as a beacon of talent and innovation, carving out a prestigious niche in the global gaming industry. It’s not just about playing games; it’s about creating worlds, telling stories, and pushing the boundaries of imagination.

Our upcoming three-day workshop, hosted by Bilkent University Faculty of Fine Arts, Design, and Architecture, Department of Graphic Design in collaboration with TOBB University of Economics and Technology brings together professionals from various design fields and the software and gaming worlds to reflect an interdisciplinary spirit.
We aim to understand the complex structure of game studios within Turkey’s dynamic ecosystem and to master the multifaceted stages of game production. From design sketches to digital production, we invite design and engineering students, as well as enthusiasts to delve into the design and engineering that empowers today’s most compelling games.

The events are designed to illuminate the path from concept to completion, focusing on essential topics covering project production, human resource dynamics, process and time management, and project management.
Join this interactive experience; shape your vision, hone your skills, and connect with like-minded creators. Whether you’re an experienced professional or a curious innovator, our workshop opens a door for you to be part of Turkey’s progress in the gaming arena, guiding you to take a role in the interactive entertainment world.
