After about a decade of gaming experience in large and smaller companies, Italo-Ghanaian game designer Allan Cudicio founded his Riot Games backed studio, Twin Drums. Based between Berlin and Accra, he is currently working on the PC game "The Wagadu Chronicles" - the first Afrofantasy MMORPG.
Allan's big passions are Dungeons & Dragons, fried plantain, dogs, cycling and justice.
Without spending a marketing cent, The Wagadu Chronicle went viral and gathered a respectable following on social media which eventually led to a successful Kickstarter. Twin Drums' founder Allan will speak to provide tips and share stories on on how he got there.
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.
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.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
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.
