I this talk, Sophie Vo and Joakim Achrén present the best practices of working from home when you are developing games with a team. What has worked well, and what are common issues and how to deal with them. There’s going to be a 15-minute presentation from both Sophie and Joakim, and then 20 minutes of Q&A for the participants to ask questions.

Sophie joined Voodoo last year to open a new studio in Berlin to explore new game experiences for the casual audience. Her team of nine developers was formed under special conditions during the Work From Home era of 2020. All the details on that and more will be shared with the audience in the webinar.
