Checkpoint 3: The Third Annual Game Industry Conference

It’s that time of the year again!

The 3rd annual Checkpoint event is upon us. For those who don’t know, Checkpoint is our FREE annual event that features guest speakers from the game industry to give talks to students to connect the GMU and the Ryerson community to the professional game development industry.

This year’s Checkpoint features several distinguished guests: Wei Zhang & Karl Merten from Vinyl Games, Diana Arruda from Gameloft, and game designer Rebecca Brooker. Our guests will focus on discussing their experiences, expertise, and the dynamics of their roles in game development teams, such as Producer, Designer, Programmer, etc.. Additionally, we will also have free giveaway items courtesy of the Microsoft Store and will be selling raffle tickets for $2 towards several prizes throughout the event.

All are welcome to attend. Come and participate in this epic learning experience with the GMU and our guest speakers. To RSVP, refer to the Facebook page:
