d3t welcomes Vicky Evans, Senior Animator

7th Feb 2024


Tell us a bit of information about your experience/career background?

I started my career in 2011 working on a children’s TV programme for 10 months, after which I moved into the games industry. I worked at TT Games for just over 8 years in both their cutscene department on LEGO games and then in their R&D department developing game concepts as part of a small team.

I also spent 2 and a half years at Cubic Motion animating faces on some fun games like Until Dawn and Battlefield 4 and have just spent a year in Frontier Developments working on the cutscenes for Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin, and then in game animations for Planet Zoo: Eurasia Animal Pack.

Why d3t?

The studio’s culture was a big draw for me. So far everyone I’ve spoken to through the interview and new starter process has been so kind and considerate, and I’ve only heard good things about the studio from people I know who work here. I love the idea of working on a wide range of games, and of course, the dogs that greeted me in the studio on my second interview were the icing on the cake!

What do you love about games?

Recently a close friend who hadn’t played games before asked me what games I thought they would enjoy. This made me think about just how many different types of games there are out there, which can provide so many different fantastic experiences depending on what you’re looking for.

Sometimes I want to switch my brain off and play something cosy, and on a different occasion I’ll want to be challenged with combat to the point of my heart nearly pounding out of my chest. I love that both of these things and everything in between I can get from a game.

What games are you currently playing, and what is your favourite game?

I’m currently playing a couple of different games – Balders Gate 3, Dave the Diver, and Super Mario Bros Wonder. I usually enjoy having a few different games on the go at once so there’s something to suit my mood at the time.

Soulsborne games are some of my favourite games, along with Hollow Knight, and recently I was completely obsessed with Inscryption.

Do you have any fun facts or hobbies?

I love hiking, especially with my DSLR when abroad, and I’m really excited about a trip to Japan I’ve got planned later in the year. I enjoy a lot of anime and manga, and this year I’ve started learning Japanese. I’ve got 2 cats and 7 cat beds (not counting me, my husband, the sofa, or our bed).
