I returned to my earlier working experience among games and animations and participated in the NGS 2016 games and networking event. The event was organized for the fifth time in Kajaani, where the local University of Applied Sciences has a very active and lively gaming society. This is also facilitated by the Kajaani University of Applied Sciences Game artist / Lead artist study program, which focuses commercialization of the games, strengthening innovation and entrepreneurial capabilities. The event allows the students to easily network with each other and with experienced professionals in the game industry.
