Dev Quest

Science & Technology

Join us on our quest, as we continue to explore and confront the challenges faced during the game development process.

Space Ape’s very own Nicoll Hunt will host the event, alongside three talented industry experts, who will share with us their experiences and solutions.

The first speaker to be announced is…..

Jon McKellan: Creative Director / Writer / Founder

With over a decade of experience in the industry working with the likes of Creative Assembly and Rockstar North, and working on genre-defining games such as Alien: Isolation, Jon formed his own studio 'No Code' with business partner Omar in 2015. Since then, Jon has been the studios creative director, writer, and lead artist on their two critically acclaimed and award-winning releases "Stories Untold" (2017) and "Observation" (2019). Having started out in User Interface design and Motion Graphics, Jon's stories and vision merges his old role with his new, building exciting and surreal narrative experiences that center around UI driven technology. In 2016, Jon was named a 'Breakthrough Brit' by BAFTA, and has gone on to create some of the sci-fi and horror genres most notable games of recent years.

Talk Title: Small Teams making Big Games: Building Observation

Jon McKellan will look at several case studies within the development of the multiple game-of-the-year nominated "Observation". All through the lens of finding creative ways for a small team to make a big game.

Further keynote speakers to be announced in the coming weeks.

The night will end with free drinks and food giving you the chance to mingle with fellow game makers and a chance to chat with the keynote speakers. The event concludes at 22:00.
