Arkane Studios

Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Mentor Sessions offer 15 minutes of one-on-one interaction with industry leaders and professionals from a variety of fields in the gaming industry.

Meeting with this Mentor is highly recommended if you’re interested in Adobe Photoshop/Design, environment art, environmental storytelling, quality assurance and certification, and concept and research skills.

Sadie has over five years of industry experience with multiple positions at Arkane Austin, Bethesda Game Studios, and Bethesda Game Studios Austin. She's worked both in Quality Assurance, which gave her a look behind the scenes of game development and helped her understand various departmental workflows, and she's currently employed as an Associate Environment Artist with her most recent project being Prey: Mooncrash. One goal of hers is to help and educate incoming game industry folk and provide guidance on how to navigate this somewhat bittersweet industry.

You can see Sadie’s full bio on her speaker page.
