Having grown up on Role Playing Games and 4X Empire Builders, Will’s life has been steeped in games for as long as he can remember. An avid gamer himself, he also spent his teenage years working in the local game stores selling the latest in next generation consoles and AAA titles. Having studied two degrees in game development, Will was lucky enough to land his first job in the games industry working for Rebellion Developments on the Sniper Elite series.
After spending some time as a University lecturer teaching games programming to undergrads, Will returned to development to work on the Horizon franchise for Firesprite, a Playstation Studio. Since then Will has started his own company and works with other studios on a number of exciting projects.
Credits include Horizon: Call of the Mountain, Sniper Elite III: Afrika and Sniper Elite IV: Italia, Illuvium
Learning to code can feel incredibly overwhelming at times. Starting out, almost everyone has a crisis of confidence as to whether they actually have what it takes to learn to code. When this happens, take a deep breath, break the problem you're facing down into its component parts and try to find one place in your code that you know you understand well and work from there. Stay calm, stay confident and, bit by bit, things will start to fall into place.
