Japan, the biggest gaming industry on earth. To be able to visit the gaming industries is a dream come true for any gamer. Let's see what some students have to say:
Hilmi, year 2 GD student:
i learnt to produce game from game companies like Namco Bandai and Square Enix. They are both doing large scale projects. It is not that easy like the ones we do in school. Theirs requires a team of at least 100 specialties eg. programmer, sound engineer, designer, etc. Of course, i learn one important skills, communication which is never lacked while working in both gaming companies.
I would like to thank Mr Alvin and Ms Leong for making this trip a dream come true. Also to my class rep, Wai Tung who did a lot of research on this Japan trip. Thank You very much!
Edgar Wong, year 2 GD student:
I want to thank Mr Alvin and other lecturers who helped plan for the trip. I learnt a lot on Japanese culture and saw how game studios work firsthand. It is an eye opener.
Ronald Bay, year 3 GD student:
I would like to thank SP and the lecturers involved for making this study trip to Japan successful! I have experienced so much and learnt alot from this trip! I learnt how convenient Japanese people live their lies and how good the culture in Japan is!
