Henrique Olifiers, Co-Founder, Gamer In Chief, Bossa Studios is finally coming to DevGAMM! Two years ago he didn’t manage to join us at the conference. At Bossa Studios he heads the company strategy and design. The studio’s biggest titles are Surgeon Simulator, I Am Bread and Worlds Adrift.
During this session, Henrique will discuss the merits of co-developing a game and its content with the community of players, the pros and cons of open development, and how to deal with the community. It’ll be based on the case of Worlds Adrift, a MMO whose entire content was created by its players before its launch.
With a games career of more than 30 years, Henrique has been at the demoscene of the late 80s, through to mobile, MMOs, VR and creatively-led indie titles.
