Rockstar Games Mentorship Month

Announcing Rockstar Games Mentorship Month

Calling all students, recent grads, and indie developers! Get advice, portfolio feedback and more from the studio behind the world’s biggest games. 

November 2021 will be Rockstar Games Month here at Playcrafting! The folks at Rockstar were such great allies for our Graffiti Games developers at Play NYC that we wanted create more free opportunities for mentorship for the rest of our community this fall. In November, we’ll be offering free weekly mentorship nights and a “Prepping for AAA” talk. If you’re interested in one or both, submit this form.

Mentorship Nights
Playcrafting has teamed up with Rockstar Games to provide a series of mentorship nights for independent game developers, students, and recent graduates looking to break into the game industry. Every Tuesday in November, we’ll be setting up one-on-one virtual sessions with Rockstar Games. This is a great opportunity to get feedback on your portfolio, resume, or the latest build of your current project. Submissions will be considered on a first-come, first serve basis. We’ll be in touch to confirm and set up an appointment for you on Zoom if approved.

“Prepping for AAA” Portfolio Guidance Talk
It can feel pretty overwhelming to prepare your portfolio when you’re looking for a job at a big AAA studio like Rockstar Games. Join this free talk on Tuesday, November 16th to get pointers from the Rockstar Games team themselves. This is a free virtual event that is open for all to join. 

Here’s the full schedule for everything coming up this month.

  • Tuesday, November 9th
