What if? What if we could take our company culture from good to great? What if we could do that in a pandemic where people aren’t working side by side, but thrown into a world of isolation? What if we could build a system which wouldn’t only support us during this time, but create opportunities for our hybrid future? These were the questions Sumo wanted to answer as the company, like so many others, was forced to deal with enormous change in a very short space of time. Sumo’s goal has always been to create incredible products that inspire a sense of wonder, but achieving that together requires teams to feel connected, developed and nurtured.

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.
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’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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 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.
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.
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!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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!
