Oliver William Walker designs games at Just Add Water. He mets Robin to talk about his career, from college, through university, experiments with games, networking, and moving into the real world of work.
Robin met Oliver at EGX, where he was participating in a ‘disabilities in the gaming industry panel’ as Oliver has bipolar disorder. The two touch on how employers can make life easier for anyone with any kind of mental disorder.
Remember kids! Everyone is different and your needs may vary, but all employers can do more to help.
Whether you want to find out how to get into the gaming industry, how to support your team or get some support for yourself, or are just plain nosey, this one’s for you. Listen below or find us on iTunes, Spotify, and Radio Public.
