Within the framework of Nival Games Lab talented students will be able to learn practical skills and to fulfill themselves to the outmost. 

Sergey Orlovsky, President of Nival Network:
”In game industry there should always be a fresh perspective, a new idea and a will to implement them. The opening of Nival Games Lab is a great step forward not only for Nival Network but for the whole game industry in Russia and CIS. We first faced some difficulties with training young designers 10 years ago, when we were organizing training courses at universities and were inviting students to train in the company and we partially solved the problem. Now we have managed to provide a complex salvation“. 

The centre is supplied with modern equipment and provides excellent working conditions in friendly, democratic and creative environment. Workshop is divided into groups of 3-5 people. It takes 3-4 month to develop each project. The best of them will be assigned marketing and advertising budget and their authors will receive a reward for each project implemented by the team. Upon the participation in Nival Games Lab the students will be able to receive job offers at Nival Network.
