Attending Interface on May 5th
A busy month of April is followed by a busy month of May! You will be able to find us at Interface on Thursday 5th May, surrounded by 350+ developers, publishers and investors of the games industry all looking to share ideas, make connections and learn about the latest trends and technology.
Once again Universally Speaking will be taking an active part in the conference, participating on the panel discussion “Is your game actually ready?”, chaired by James Batchelor. On the day, you will also be able to learn about tax breaks and of course you will be able to hear from Dan Pinchbeck, from The Chinese Room.
We hope to see you all there!
TIGA’s QA, LOCALISATION AND CS SUMMIT
As part of our very busy month of April, we will be attending TIGA’s QA, Localisation and CS Summit on Tuesday 26th April.
The summit will be the perfect stage to quiz QA, Localisation and CS specialists on best practice and learn about what works and what doesn’t seem to work quite as well. Our very own Loreto Sanz Fueyo will be presenting at the summit and discussing the merits of localising in the current market.
The summit will also see participants from Jagex, NextGen Skills Academy, Playground Games, Natural Motion and Media Molecule.

Women in Games Awards Finalist
MCV’s Women In Games Award returns this May and we are proud to announce that our very own CEO, Vickie Peggs, has been listed as a finalist in the Businesswoman of the Year award category.
Vickie Peggs founded Universally Speaking in 2002 and has led the company since then, meeting the challenges and changes the industry has gone through: the birth and explosion of mobile gaming, Facebook games, the growth of the indie landscape, new technologies, F2P, mobas, VR…
MCV’s Women In Games awards recognises and rewards the contribution of women to the UK games industry and this year it is supported by the Women in In Games (WIGJ) body, who sponsor the Rising Star award category. The awards are also backed by Facebook, whose head of gaming sales EMEA has joined the judging panel.
When asked for her reaction to the nomination, Vickie Peggs said she felt “humbled and honoured” to be considered as a finalist. As a company, Universally Speaking feel equally humbled and honoured to see our CEO’s name alongside the other worthy nominations.
Where to find us in the next few weeks?
April started in full force with the London Games Festival, which we found fascinating at the same time as exhausting. We have only just recovered!
We quickly followed that with EGX Rezzed and of course the BAFTA Games Awards – what a fabulous night!
But we are not resting the rest of the month. If you want to catch up with us, you will find us at VR in a Bar this Thursday, April 14th. Come and say hi!
Later in the month we will be speaking at the TIGA QA, Loc & CS Summit in London on April 26th, talking about all things localisation. Then on May 5th we will be at Interface, where we will have the pleasure of speaking again.
If you want to have a chat or a coffee/beer at any of the events we will be attending, just drop us a line on email@example.com. We are a chatty bunch and we’ll be happy to talk to you!
