In this highly technical and mobile based world games and the games industry have the opportunity to lead the way in new, innovative methods of aiding those suffering from mental ill health for those both inside the industry and those using technology as escapism but is enough being done? If not what could we be doing differently and is the industry obligated to do more?

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.
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!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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’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.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.
