“Do you ever hear the distant sound of a dial up modem and wonder if any of this is really real?”
Cherie Davidson is a game developer and teacher, currently working as associate producer at Media Molecule on Dreams and as programmer on upcoming indie title Intergalactic Space Princess. Previous to shipping Tearaway Unfolded and Wander MMO, she lectured and tutored game development at RMIT University in Melbourne.
In 2013 she was a judge and speaker at Freeplay Independent Game Festival and just two years later she became the event's first ever Jury Chair. In 2016 she was named in Develop’s 30 under 30 and in 2017 selected to join BAFTA Crew.
She has a strong interest in meaningful game design and loves the technical joy of problem-solving through code. In her spare time, she develops games fuelled by her personal interest in topics of feminism, social justice, ludonarrative resonance and occasionally even fun.
