Lizi has been working in the industry for over 17 years. In that time she has contributed towards more than 20 titles. Lizi founded Furious Bee five years ago as Technical Director. We help other people make their games and we also dabble with our own stuff in between. Most recently we worked with Sam Barlow to develop Telling Lies.
A visual, technical and entrepreneurial adventure through more than two years developing the spiritual successor to Her Story with a highly distributed team. Lizi will present the developmental journey of the project using a visual timeline showing progression of the software as it came into being, all the way through to a description of the small incremental polish that went in at the end. Showing screenshots to demonstrate the iterative process and describing the technical implementation of some specific features. Such as how it was localised into eleven languages, when the gameplay is heavily dependent on the subtitle text and the searches that the players make. As well as how videos are played just as smoothly backwards as they play forwards. All along the way with an underlying nod to the way that Furious Bee works with its clients and operates a profitable business.

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 is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
