Avid video gamers from Maidenhead were treated to a special talk from a games designer about working in the industry.
Darren Barnett joined a dozen teenagers at the Pinkneys Green Community Centre in Blenheim Road on yesterday afternoon to divulge tips and inside knowledge about the games industry.
Organiser Sarah Grigg, who help found the DC@YC youth club, said the event was set up for youngsters like her 16-year-old son Joe who dreams of getting into the industry.
The Windsor Road resident said: "It's a great opportunity for the teenagers to get an insight into the industry and ask questions."
The club, which is for hearing impaired teenagers and their friends aged 12-17, is held at the community centre from 12-3pm on the last Sunday of each month.
