This past weekend at Game Design Expo, hosted by Vancouver Film School, Relic Entertainment’s Jonathan Dowdeswell announced the Brian Wood Memorial Game Design Internship.
Wood, a Lead Game Designer for Company of Heroes and longtime Relic employee, was killed in a tragic motor vehicle accident in September 2010. His wife, Erin, and their then-unborn child both survived. (Erin says that Brian sacrificed himself with a quick swerve prior to impact.)
Relic will award four-month internships to three graduating Vancouver Film School students that exhibit passion and excellence in game design, much like Brian.
