Gameplay pacing is critical in deciding which information is presented to the player at any given moment, while they are playing. In this talk you will take home tools that can help you and your team pace the flow of information that is presented to your player. The talk will also cover how these tools were used to improve the HUD and in-game UI for the critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn and to craft Battlefield V’s onboarding experience
The attendees will take away new ways to improve their game UI’s information architecture, specifically with regards to how the flow of information is paced. They will take home tools, in the form of simple exercises and heuristics, that can be used to help their teams achieve this goal. They will also be shown concrete examples of how these tools have been used to ship features in major AAA games like Horizon Zero Dawn and Battlefield V.

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 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!
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.
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 something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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 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.
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.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
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.
