Anastasiia Tsaplii has been a game developer for 8 years, joined Bossa Studios as a part of Worlds Adrift team in 2018.
Prior to that, Anastasiia led a prototyping team at Goodgame Studios (Hamburg, Germany) where she was responsible for a small team working on mobile multiplayer titles, creating network solutions for multiple free-to-play competitive titles and exploring alternative solutions for peer-to-peer games.
Graduated in Computer Science, she spent the first few years working for small game studios in Kyiv, Ukraine, mostly specializing in gameplay development for both PC and mobile games, before moving to Germany.
Every project starts with an idea, which becomes a prototype if you’re lucky. This talk is about how different studios establish prototyping processes and make their ideas a reality.
We will take a closer look at development guidelines and methods on two different platforms, mobile and PC, and how a platform’s constraints can shape ideas and production.
We will talk about how to create a basic toolset for rapid prototyping, reuse pre-existing production codebase & mechanics to improve the prototype’s quality, and identify the technical limitations of the platform as a part of the prototyping process.
We will look into multiple prototype stages and ways of getting feedback, and how we as developers can improve visibility through data analysis and analytics during playtesting.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
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 felt a big passion here at Develop!
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
