Paul has been making games in his spare time since the age of 12 and has always dreamt of new online worlds. Today he’s VP of Product at Improbable, a London based startup making SpatialOS, a platform that enables developers to build new kinds of online games.
Paul joined Improbable in 2012, when it was four programmers in a barn, and is slightly stunned by the 250 people he works with now. Though he started as a programmer who wanted to make games, Paul has since done everything in the company, from working on the core technology, to managing Improbable's early partners, to business development and marketing. He still wants to make games...
In today’s saturated marketplace, differentiating your game is critical - but going beyond the median often means running into tough technical challenges, especially for online games. Improbable will talk about SpatialOS, its platform for making massive simulations, and how it enables developers to bypass the technical challenges inherent in creating more complex online games.
The session will then go through two new SpatialOS integrations Improbable is working on, for Unity and Unreal.

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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 really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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 an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel 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.
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.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
