Felicia Prehn is an almost-completely blind game and animation producer based in Finland. She is an advocate for accessibility and inclusion of the disabled in the game development process, and is also a DJ and eurodance artist.
Accessibility and inclusion in games aren't trends, but rather a necessity in a world where hundreds of millions of people are disabled. But how can developers and companies find disabled gamers to help them in their work? Why is it important and what does any of this actually mean? Felicia Prehn will answer these important questions and more, as well as discuss her perspective as a blind woman working in the game industry.

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

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.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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: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.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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.
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 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
