Games Talks Live is back in Scotland this March. GTL will be taking over Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen from the 13th to 16th of March for two days of talks on games development and design. The first day is all about making your idea into a game with speakers across creative disciplines scrambling up ideas on how best to make that happen. On the second day there’s an opportunity for developers or designers looking to pitch their own project or talk about one they’re working on right now as well as some great hands-on workshops where you can get together with fellow attendees. This event promises something for everyone interested in gaming!

The “Games Talks Live Scotland” is a gaming convention that takes place in March. The event will be back this year with talks, panels, and more. Read more in detail here: scottish gaming.

The presentations will be webcast live on YouTube for anyone who are unable to attend in person. You may get a free livestream ticket by signing up here.
