Since a young age Eddie Faria had a passion for art, drawing fantastic creatures, Dinosaurs, Comic characters and outer worldly environments. Growing up he also developed a love of video games and computers and was inspired by movies such as Lord of the Rings and always dreamed of a career where he could combine his love for computers and art.

Eddie graduated from Humber College’s 3D Animation Program. Upon graduating Eddie was hired by one of the top video game companies in Toronto, Pseudo Interactive where his career in the video game world took off. Although games wasn’t his first choice he was inspired by working with so many talented and creative people and developed a love of video game art. Since then Eddie has worked at major video game studios across Ontario including Ubisoft, Frozen North productions and Blot interactive. Eddie has worked on a variety of games ranging from mobile to Playstation 4 titles. Eddie also got a chance to realize his dream and work at a film studio, working on the Teletoon TV series Mudpit.

After 8 years in the industry Eddie was given the opportunity to give back and teach all the skills he learned in his career to other aspiring young artists at George Brown College where he works to this day! We are excited to have our guests join us this summer!

#EatPlayMingle and Global Game Jam

eatplaymingleposter

Last month Every1Games sponsored and hosted #EatPlayMingle along with the International Game Developers Association from George Brown College. The event was an opportunity for programmers, artists, designers and students to come together and enjoy a night out while networking, playing games and eating pizza. There was a great turn out and a lot of connections were formed.

The attendees had the opportunity to learn more about Every1Games as we surveyed interests from excelling students who’d be interested in mentoring high school students.

They also got to engage with the members of 13AM Games on their process of making their new release Runbow which was created at a Toronto Game Jam and is coming out soon for the WiiU. (Runbow was also showcased at last years Level Up Student Showcase which is coming up again in april). 13AM Games spoke about their experiences making their game but also gave advice to those who want to follow in their footsteps. During the event there was an open opportunity for everyone to have a chance to play Runbow before it’s release.
