Gaming has become the world’s largest entertainment industry, with global revenues of $170 billion in 2020 (Gilbert, Business Insider). The industry is now almost 3 times bigger than both music and movies combined. 50% of the world’s mobile games are made in Unity, with studios scrambling to hire talented developers and artists to join their team.
The inception of Game Train
“Game Train” is an industry-led initiative with the aim to take talented individuals on board and chisel their potential and upscale their skills for the global gaming market.
What really is Game Train?
An industry-led initiative, Game Train has recently caught the limelight as it is working for filling the gap between the academia and corporate industry.
According to industry estimates, universities in Pakistan are still struggling to cater to the demand of the industry with only 20% of the graduates considered “employable”. To address this gap, Game Train is providing a platform to identify, train and ensure the placement of outstanding individuals in top companies in Pakistan.
Their latest initiative by the name of Junior Unity Developer Employment Programme (JUD), in partnership with Unity Technologies and Foundation for Youth Employment Pakistan (a licensee of Generation, the world’s fastest-growing youth employment non-profit), encompasses training 90+ graduates, fresh from the university, on Unity Game Development.
