GANG Q-Challenge!

gdc 2012



The first Q-Challenge took place this 2nd quarter of 2012. The Q-Challenge (A quarterly challenge, hence the "Q") was the brainchild of Crysis composer, Borislav Slavov and (to a lesser extent) Loot Drop’s Dren McDonald.

The idea was to create a fun, creative project that would encourage GANG members (of ever level) to collaborate together and then allow the winners some bragging rights (and PRIZES!)

This year’s prizes were generously donated by SoundIron and Sound Librarian. GANG would like to again thank both of our Q-Challenge sponsors for such great prizes!

IGDA Mentoring Program



Recently there have been some requests to get a mentoring program off of the ground here at GANG.

There have been various initiatives and alternative programs put into place over the years, in regards to education, but we thought we might try something new.

In talking with the IGDA we are trying out a casual partnership with IGDA using the infrastructure that IGDA has put in place to make matches with mentors and mentees in the game industry.
So you must be a member of IGDA in order to take part in their program, but GANG will help IGDA find mentors in the game audio side of the industry, once Scholrship candidates have been nominated.

Please head on over to the info page to read more about the programs in case you are interested in being a mentor OR a protege.
