Cash DeCuir is a freelance narrative designer and writer, who formerly worked for Failbetter Games. In his two and a half years with the company, he worked on Sunless Sea: Zubmariner and Sunless Skies and acted as lead writer on Fallen London. He is also the lead writer and designer on Stave Studio's upcoming narrative adventure game, Over the Alps, which recently made its first public appearance as part of the EGX Rezzed Leftfield Collection.
Games offer something no other medium can: an immediate dialogue with its audience. To play a game is to make decisions about where to go, what to do, and how to do it. But how does one personalize those choices, so they become memorable, powerful experiences? Cash DeCuir offers a practical framework for examining stories and maximizing their impact in an interactive medium.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
