Score

Score is a new student club for people interested in video game development. It aims to be the first Finnish student chapter of IGDA, the International Game Developers’ Association. Score is also formally known as Tampere University of Applied Sciences Game Development Club.

Who gets to Score?

Basically anyone who’s up for it! We invite every student interested in gamedev as a career, as one of our main points is to form an active medium for students to communicate with each other – pretty much what IGDA is doing with the current developers. We plan on creating and maintaining relationships with other similar instances (like DiGRA) and all local studios.

Our aims can be split in two as follows:

1. Getting our hands dirty

Making our own games and/or modifications to existing games. Nothing can replace real life experience, so we must do what we must do. We will have at least one project on at all times depending on resources and prefer smaller/more creative/experimental ones over big total conversions or such.
We have a lot of students who study producing/design/audio/writing etc, so it’s in our interests to build “simple” games with rich content or unique playability. Self reflectionism is also a keyword, as we want to study every aspect of game design and not take anything as-is.

2. Networking and directing studies

It is not that easy to know what is up in the business and who is who without digging the web really hard. We plan on providing a more efficient channel of information for the students and at the same time a possibility for the companies to review possible future employees. We would love to see companies recruiting students from our ranks to some low level summer jobs and such.
Besides that, we help students to find the most efficient way to utilise their skills on game dev, not depending on what their major is in school.

How can I Score?

In short: Let us know you exist! You might want to visit our home page and follow the instructions there. If you are still not sure, you can always contact us at score(at)igda.fi or join our club meetings!
