After 10+ years of experience, ranging from mobile and Facebook to AAA games, Eevi Korhonen is very familiar with the many facets of game design. As a narrative designer, her main areas of interest are worldbuilding and the intersection of mechanics and storytelling. Her love for all things weird and creepy can be witnessed in her latest works, CONTROL and Returnal.
In this talk, Eevi Korhonen discusses the storytelling techniques used in Returnal and how they were utilized to craft its haunting story. The talk journeys through the challenges of telling a story in a game with fast-paced action gameplay and a roguelite structure all the way to how the team managed to combine elements from various genres to create the strange cocktail that makes up Returnal.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
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.
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.

Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
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.
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 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!
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.
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.
It’s fantastic to have such an event that provides this opportunity for all the game devs, indie devs and other organisations to get together to showcase what they do, meet and interact.
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!
