Dev Talks: Level up with a Post-Mortem & Discovering the 3D Artist Within

Aug 30, 2019 | Dev Talks

Over the past few months our lead designer Mike James and art director Patrick Hore have been preparing presentations on their journeys and experiences.

In the later half of 2019 and early 2020 they will be presenting their talks at various game industry events across the UK. In the hopes that they will inspire both individuals and teams to undertake new challenges, develop better practices and look after themselves throughout.

Mike James

Lead Designer

Mike arrived at Castle Brightrock with a ton of experience from AAA game development, and two tons of sticky notes to boot. He’s proven indispensable in all aspects of development, helping push us to new heights, and writing it all up on Confluence for good measure.

Patrick Hore

Patrick Hore

Art Director, 3D Artist

Pat has risen through the ranks to now lead our art department, yet still finds time to get hands on. His sense of humour brings much needed laughter to the blood, sweat and tears of game dev. He’s even allowed himself to become art, and there is now a Pat emoji for every occasion.
