With past speakers like John Romero, we’ve come to expect a lot of the Develop:Brighton keynote, so it’s very exciting to learn that this year is set to deliver another engaging talk from an iconic developer. For Develop:Brighton 2023, that developer is Jon Ingold, co-founder and narrative director of inkle games and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe alumni.
Delivering a talk titled “Further Up and Further In: Making Richer Gameplay Narratives”, Ingold’s set to share his experiences from twelve years of working at inkle and beyond, concentrating on developing rich and replayable narratives. With inkle giving the world 80 Days, Overboard!, and other exciting and well-received narrative adventures, there are few better to discuss the subject.
Ingold himself is looking forward to the conference, saying, “the Develop conference is the beating heart of UK games, and I’m thrilled to have been invited to speak this year. I can’t wait to share the strategies we have developed at inkle across the last decade to aid others in creating narrative experiences that keep their integrity with every playthrough.”
