Graduate on list of next generation computer games’ gurus

Karn BiancoAn annual list of the top 30 people aged under 30 in the UK computer games industry has included a University of Derby student graduating in January.

Karn Bianco, 24, originally from Derby, is already being viewed as an industry star and has been listed in the sixth annual ‘30 under 30’ list, compiled by the influential Develop magazine.

Karn, now working as a Graduate Software Engineer with computer games company Rare, of Warwickshire, has already contributed to three games console titles in less than two years.

He said: “Being included in Develop magazine’s ‘30 under 30’ list was an amazing surprise and it’s a pleasure to be listed alongside so many talented game developers. I’ve been lucky to have the chance to work on great projects at amazing companies and it’s very gratifying to have that work recognised."

A University of Derby spokesman added: “This is a substantial achievement by Karn and we expect him to go on to great things.”
