Splash Damage is going to Develop: Brighton 2023!

June 14, 2023

We’re just one month away from Develop: Brighton 2023, where we’ll be heading down to the south coast along with most of the UK games industry for three days of learning, networking and celebrating.  

The Develop conference is a highlight of our calendar every year and we love getting to see old friends, make new ones, and learn from the myriad of talks. 

As you’d expect, we’re attending this year. But, to celebrate the most exciting era of Splash Damage yet, we’re going bigger! 

Visit us at the Develop Expo 

On Wednesday 12 July and Thursday 13 July, we’ll be exhibiting as part of the Develop Expo on stand D20/D22. We’re sharing the space with our friends and partners at Bulkhead, and we’ll be joined by a host of Splashers across disciplines. 

Throughout the expo, you’ll be able to swing by to chat with us about any of our open roles and find out about what life is like working at Splash Damage

We’re also offering portfolio reviews so bring yours along! We’ll take a look and give you advice and guidance on where you could improve.  

And if you’re looking for more general career advice? Come on by and we’ll be happy to share some pointers and tips. 

Oh, and we might have some exclusive swag available too… 

Splash Damage Talks at Develop 

Our stand isn’t all that’s going on, though. You can hear from three of our Splashers at talks taking place as part of the Develop Conference: 

Before joining Splash Damage, Diana was lead developer and main writer on Runescape’s epic grandmaster quest Extinction. Head to her talk to find out “what went wrong, what went right, and the lessons learned from building an end-of-the-world story in a live game.” 

Senior Platform Engineer Regner’s talk will be covering Horde: the new build system developed by Epic for the Unreal Engine. He’ll be sharing what it is, why it’s great, and what was learnt when it was rolled out to the studio. 

TECH LEADERSHIP IN GAMES – Roundtable discussion with Ben Laws 

Thursday 13th July, 2pm – 2.45pm, Room 5 

This roundtable will discuss technical leadership in the games industry, and offer practical advice. Ben Laws, a Lead Systems Engineer here at Splash Damage, will be joining three other lead programmers and engineers. 

So that’s our plan for Develop: Brighton 2023; we hope to see you there! If you can’t make it, follow us on Twitter and Instagram where we’ll be posting throughout the event.
