Bogdan Vera is a programmer at Media Molecule, with a focus on music and audio creation tools and user interaction. Previously he performed research in audio analysis and musical interaction at Queen Mary, University of London, before making a transition into game development.
This session takes a look back at the development of a novel, fully-fledged yet unique digital audio toolset within Media Molecule's acclaimed new title ‘Dreams’.
These tools were designed and implemented from the ground up to create an experience that would be fun for complete beginners but also fulfilling for advanced audio creators - including the game's own audio team, which made the entire game's soundtrack using the same tools.
The session focuses on the challenges and knowledge derived in trying to bridge the gap between players and experts, both from a UX design perspective and a technical one. Programmer Bogdan Vera will also demonstrate content creation in Dreams focusing on unique workflows enabled by the game's mindset, which may have wider applications within the industry.
Rare insights into the design, implementation and use of a unique digital audio toolset within a videogame intended for end users and game creators alike.
How the team overcame specific challenges of designing for both players and experts and what they learned along the way.
Why the unique workflows enabled by the game's mindset may have wider application within the 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.

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!
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 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.
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.
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’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!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
