Women in Games and ReFiG Drinks
Tue 12 July 2016, 17:30 – 20:00 BST
Women in Game WIGJ are teaming up with the University of Brighton and ReFig to host drinks, informal networking and talks for women in games, taking place alongside the Develop Conference on Tuesday 12th July in Brighton. We warmly invite all women who work in or around games, are interested in games as a creative hobby or who are looking to take their first steps into the industry. The event will offer you the chance to chat to and meet other like-minded people and strengthen the support network of women in the industry. Men are very welcome to attend the event as guests of a woman attending.
We are delighted to welcome 2 speakers in Brighton for the Develop Conference, Robin Hunicke, Co-Founder of Funomena and Noah Falstein, Chief Game Designer at Google.
Robin Hunicke is based in San Francisco and has been designing, making and teaching games for over 12 years. She is the Co-Founder of the independent game studio Funomena, who believe games should have a positive impact on the world. Recognised as an influential Woman in Games, Robin is also an outspoken evangelist for diversity of thought and participation in game design and game culture.
Noah Falstein has been in the computer game industry since 1980 with many hit title credits and work experience at major developers like LucasArts, 3DO, and Dreamworks Interactive. Currently Chief Game Designer at Google, he is in the Developer Advocacy group, where he represent Google’s developer platforms, ecosystems, products, and APIs to the developer community, focusing on games and game developers of all kinds.
