Guest Lecture Series – Gary Lloyd

On Wednesday 04th November 2015, Gary Lloyd will be coming to the university to give a lecture on life after university and creating a successful indie game.

 

Gary Lloyd

Co Founder @ Sigtrap

 

Gary is a 2015 ex-graduate of Computer Games Design at Huddersfield University. His first game Sub Level Zero for his company Sigtrap has just launched on steam. Come listen to his talk on his experience of release an indie game.

SIGTRAP
Sigtrap was founded by Luke Thompson and Gary Lloyd after the development of Ludum Dare 29 entry Sublevel Zero. With Mastertronic acquiring publishing rights for a full game based on the entry, Sigtrap was set up to develop Sublevel Zero with a view to creating more games in the future.
Lead artist Gary Lloyd studied Game Design at Huddersfield University, and taking a sabbatical working for Huddersfield-based studio HyperSloth Games gave him the experience needed to helm a project of his own. Meeting the other future members of the Sublevel Zero team through the HudDevField group, Gary quickly made himself indispensible.
