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 a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
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.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
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 something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
