Dom Clarke was a research scientist studying animal behaviour and perception, and developing software for experimental control, monitoring, simulation and analysis. In 2018 he left academia to pursue game development. He cofounded Spiral Circus with artist Tom Mead after they were accepted into the Swedish game accelerator program Stugan. At Stugan they developed the pitch for their first game Silt, a game marrying the gloomy visual style of Tom Mead’s art with elements of the animal behaviour simulations he built as a scientist.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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!
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.
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.
People should come to Develop because it’s where the UK games industry meets.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
