Dan Hoang - MediaTonic Art heavyweight. Worked on a lot of important milestone games for Mediatonic; his last gig is being one of the principal concept artists for Fall Guys. Dan is not afraid to mix 2D and 3D creating wonderful characters and environments giving FG it’s unique visual flair. Approaching a decade in the industry he has worked on a wide range of AAA and mobile titles.
Alexander (Studio Art Manager), Ash and Dan (both Principal Concept Artists) will guide delegates through the process of visdev and the overall art creation of Mediatonic’s PC and console title Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. The talk will cover how the art team tackled creating a Takeshi’s Castle-inspired game world full of chaotic courses that’s both unique and appealing, while also inherently a Mediatonic title all at the same time. Explore the processes behind designing hundreds of loveable, bumbling characters and costumes, all within the constraints of hardware and game design. Uncover answers to questions like ‘But what texture and density IS a Fall Guy?’ and ‘How DOES a jellybean in a banana suit look when it gets hit by a giant mallet?’ amongst other important questions.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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’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 is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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!
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.
