After a history in audio design, filmmaking, and games design, Jack co-founded Flavourworks with the goal of merging the worlds of film and games like never before. The studio's first title 'ERICA' is being published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PS4 in 2019.
Flavourworks has spent the past few years working out how to merge the worlds of film and video games (a growing trend in 2019). We found that designing for live action is a whole other world than designing for traditional 3D games. We found there were many opportunities by using film language and live action performances, but simultaneously had to throw away a lot of the design trends we were accustomed to. We had to pioneer whole new ways to make game mechanics and interaction out of live action vide, and worked with our coders to built an editor to help with designing alongside writers in advance of the filming process. We came up with techniques to allow players to touch the world of the film in tactile ways for both consoles and touch screen. We hope it will inspire other designers to make cross-media breakthroughs.

I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
Mike Bithell Games
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
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.
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 important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
