Videogame developer Billy Cain, Vice President of Critical Mass Interactive, will be the featured guest for the latest Artist Series event being held at Full SailÂs main campus on Friday, April 23rd. Produced by Full SailÂs School of Game Design & Development, this event is a chance for students to interact with a veteran game industry executive. The Artist Series will begin at 7:00pm.
Billy Cain has over 12 years of experience in the professional gaming industry, and has acted as both lead designer and producer on a number of best-selling titles for a variety of platforms. Cain has worked on such acclaimed PC titles as Wing Commander: Prophecy, and Abuse. His console output includes recent games like SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, both released for the Sony Playstation 2 and Nintendo GameCube.
ÂBilly Cain brings vast knowledge of the gaming industry to campus,Â says Rob Catto, Full SailÂs Program Director for Game Design & Development. ÂThe list of platforms he has developed for stretches back to the 16-Bit console era, and he has a long list of top shelf titles under his belt.Â
Full SailÂs Game Design & Development staff is committed to bringing creative artists like Billy Cain to campus, helping to bridge the gap between the industry and the classroom. ÂFull Sail students are eager to speak with industry professionals who visit campus,Â says Rob Catto, Full SailÂs Program Director for Game Design & Development. ÂOne of the best ways to learn how to build a career in entertainment is to speak with someone who has already established their career. This will be a great learning experience for our students, as well as a great networking opportunity as they get ready to enter the industry.Â
In January of 2003 Full SailÂs Game Design & Development program was chosen by Electronic Gaming Monthly as one of the top 5 programs in the country.
Full SailÂs continuing Artist Series is designed to bring nationally recognized creative artists to Full Sail. The Artist Series events include on-stage interviews, performances, screenings and Q&A sessions for students and staff.
