Jess is focused on reimagining what gaming could be through restorative design. Having worked on a number of award-winning games and in a variety of roles across the industry, her adventures have led her into the natural and magical world of Everwild, as a Senior Technical Designer at Rare. When taking a quiet moment to breathe on this journey, Jess is exploring how we can practice meditation, mindfulness, and self-care through video games, and is deeply supportive of the cozy games movement.

Pingle Studio XD Networking Series Presents: Tech Vs Game - Design Challenges and Taking Advantage of Tech Constraints
Ask any creative person if they like constraints and most will answer that it makes them more creative and efficient over an open canvas approach.
Join us as our panellists discuss the current and past hardware and software constraints they have encountered and how they have worked around them followed by some of the best practices working within constraints.
We will conclude with their ideal future tech and maybe even design the future gaming system that enables them to bring their creations to an even wider audience.
