Mike Gamble is Head of Strategy for Talenthouse Media Foundry responsible for the design, build and targeting of the new platform.
A video games industry veteran of some 30 years having held senior roles at Sega, Microsoft, THQ, MathEngine and most recently Epic where he ran the EMEA Unreal Engine licensing business.
Mike is an Honorary Doctor of the University at Staffs Uni and Independent Board member of the Swedish Game Developer Starbreeze.
Mike Gamble, the former European head of Unreal Engine, is calling on developers to rethink how they develop and take games to market – whilst retaining IP ownership, creative control and managing the tricky problem of discoverability.
Talenthouse Media Foundry is a suite of services that provides developers access to the skills they don't have internally, allowing them creative and commercial control of their projects throughout the entire development cycle from Pre Production right through to 'Go to Market'.
Mike will call on developers to seriously consider how they target and develop projects, the best use and ownership of IP, creative freedom and even the nuts and bolts of how they develop their titles.
This presentation is a must see for any developer considering their development and commercial options, either in the short or long term.
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.
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.
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!
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
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.
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 really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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.
