Games Developer, specialising in tools, systems, and procedural generation. Worked predominantly as a tools programmer for over 25 years, on many titles in the Fable series at Lionhead, as well as several years at Hello Games, Flaming Fowl Studios, and Elixir Studios. I set up Apparance Studios Ltd to support development of my procedural middleware system "Apparance". A toolset and engine to provide interactive, runtime, proc-gen authoring tools to plug into game engines such as Unity and Unreal.
This talk describes the tools, technology, and techniques used to build the varied environments needed for the digital adaptation of the Gloomhaven board game for Flaming Fowl Studios. It covers the game requirements and constraints, the generation pipeline that was built, the procedural scene elements involved, the interactive nature of the tools, and, the decoration, population, and styling of maps.

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.
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.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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!
