(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) As many as 30 students, graduates and gaming enthusiasts are taking part in a workshop on e-game development which began at Crowne Plaza Muscat on Sunday.

The Information Technology Authority (ITA) represented by the Sas programme, in association with the Australian Game Development Company, is conducting the workshop, which will offer necessary skills to Omani gaming start-ups to become successful.

Expert speakers and mentors from the Australian gaming industry, such as Jeremy Ray, game critic; Dan Vogt, co-founder, Halfbrick; Jack Gillespie, founder of Well Placed Cactus; Dan Graf, game designer and artist at Halbrick and Tim Taylor, Unity game engine epert, are attending the workshop, which will cover subjects such as marketability, entrepreneurialism, publishing, and community building.

Thirty participants were chosen from over 100 applicants for the workshop.

The release said that those who missed out on the workshop will still have access to the mentors through a separate networking event.

This will ensure that many more Omanis benefit from this initiative. Attendees will later be split into teams to develop a game within three days. The winning team will win year-long licences for the gaming engine Unity, and a two-month internship at Sydney-based studio, Epiphany Games. The workshop will conclude on June 20.
