Serioud Bros. is one of the finalists in the Indie Showcase with their game Imagine Earth.
In this economic strategy game you can build global civilizations, hopefully without plunging the entire planet into a climate crisis. Imagine Earth is a relaxed building simulation that can turn into an ecological survival thriller based on your development decisions.
The game puts the player in the position of a global economic actor. He has to build and supply his colonies on distant planets with food, energy, produce and trade goods into space. Forming alliances or competing against other corporations is also part of the game. In order to preserve quality of life for his inhabitants and to avoid a climate crisis, he has to do research and development to establish a balance between growth and sustainability sooner or later.
Imagine Earth focuses on the conflict between the economic growth spiral and environmental sustainability. Corporations face all kinds of diplomatic troubles and will have to work together in a world congress at a certain point to maintain the environment as the base of their economic and social living conditions. In this sense the game thematizes business ethics and corporate power.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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’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 the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
