Gaming has become the world’s largest entertainment industry, with global revenues of $170 billion in 2020. Yes, that’s billion, not million, and the industry is now almost three times bigger than both music and movies combined. So, it’s no surprise that game developers have become some of the most sought-after talent in the technology sector, and this holds true in Pakistan just as much as anywhere in the world. About 50 per cent of the world’s mobile games are made in Unity, so studios are scrambling to hire talented developers and artists who can join their team and perform at the highest level.

The search for talent is on, and GameTrain is a Pakistani game development accelerator that is helping young computer science grads get on a fast track into the sector. They’ve partnered with the Foundation for Youth Employment Pakistan, a non-profit that specialises in creating employment bootcamps for different high demand industries.
