Lewis has worked in and around the video games media for more than a decade, because somehow it's 2018 already. A former journalist, editor and producer, Lewis has publicised more than 100 indie games, and made a few of his own. Now the founder and director of indie consultancy Game If You Are, he was featured in MCV's 2018 '30 Under 30’.
Laying bare the inner workings of the games media, Lewis explains how indies can earn their place in the press and on influencer channels.

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.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
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.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
