Metaverses are the phoenix rising from the ashes left by the global pandemic. Right now, everyone wants one from Facebook to Crypto Kings. Metaverses are popping up like magic mushrooms after a rainstorm. One key ingredient to building one is Game Dev skills. And much like the .com boom & bust of the early noughties, there will be winners and losers. Who are they, and what does it mean for Jo Indie-Dev?
This talk will outline what I have learned about this new trend, how it relates to crypto & NFTs, and where there are interesting products and opportunities for developers like us. I do not profess to be an expert, but I can share data and insight gathered from signing projects, interviews with key players & working with companies building metaverses and for the new digital world.
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.
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: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 something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.

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.
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 really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
