Bossa Studios is a BAFTA winning independent games developer and publisher based in London. Driven by creativity, charm, and flair, we make games for fun's sake, including the critically-acclaimed Surgeon Simulator and I am Bread. Our community is integral to our ethos, as best represented by Worlds Adrift; a truly ambitious undertaking that's redefining the genre through its use of user-generated content, which we're proud to label as the world's first Community-Crafted MMO! We are also working on a first person shooter game built around an AI-driven emergent narrative system (See http://www.bossastudios.com/ai/ if you are wondering what that means!) along with Creative Director Chet Faliszek (Left4Dead, Portal 2, Team Fortress 2)!
And we're hiring!

Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.

I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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 very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
