Oh what a (One Special) Night!

The stars certainly came out for One Special Night yesterday evening as our spectacular line up of speakers kept us entertained and enthralled for a couple of hours (and a bit more) as we cruised towards the big day.

Elise told us about how Angry Birds started off as the product of a game jam and grew into the behomothic (that’s not a word but you know what I mean) avian franchise it is today whilst Craig and Andy gave hints and tips to succeeding as entrepreneurs in different elements of the games industry.

Deborah and Craig talked about the culture of work and philanthropy at Space Ape and Rare Ltd whilst Kate explained that content creators should take into consideration all users and how she worked with an autistic viewer to get her stream right.

Sefton and Gaz from Rocksteady made being wrong in a quiz into an exercise of kindness and generosity.

And Tim? Well Tim was his usual legendary self. How appropriate… because the audience were pretty darned legendary too.

Huge, huge thanks to Colin and the Scottish Games Network for hosting One Special Night. And to our sponsors, prize providers, viewers, speakers and audience for seeing in One Special Day with One Special Night.

Wait… you missed it? Well, not to worry. We recorded the whole thing and you can go and watch it by following this link. The raffle is closed, so please don’t enter it. You can still make a donation though. We’d like that.

What a truly brilliant start to One Special Day. Thank you to everyone who made it One Special Night.

Well, we did say it was One Special Night, Tim
