Meet a Molecule
Meet Gem Abdeen, our Outreach Manager here at Media Molecule! We've put her in the hot seat this month to help the CoMmunity get to know her and all the amazing work she does at Mm HQ:
What do you do on Dreams?
I’m the Outreach Manager on Dreams so it’s my job to research and roadmap our future collaborations and partnerships. For Dreams, the net of opportunity is so wide as it reaches so many industries outside of games. Theatre companies using it to plan out their stages, architectures building out their plans, the next top music artist writing a hit! Education is also a huge area of interest for me. I’d like to get Dreams involved with schools as the ease & depth of the tools makes it a great platform for learning. I can’t wait to share some of our amazing partnerships with you all!
What're you looking forward to the CoMmunity doing in Dreams?
I just can’t wait to see what you all do with the tools. LBP creators blew our minds and now with Dreams I can’t even begin to imagine what you are going to create.
What do you like to do in Dreams? Do you have a favourite creation?
For me Dreams is the first time I think I’ve ever felt I could actually make my own game. I’m far from an artist but to have the ability to take people’s creations, edit them and make my own level is just so easy and fun.
Favourite food, movie and song, in that order. GO!
Ok! Favourite food - I have two joint winners. If I’ve had one of those days and I just need to chill, my comfort food go-to is a good old jacket potato with cheese and beans!! My treat food, which I love, is sushi! My favourite song is anything from Red Hot Chili Peppers, with Otherside being one of my faves. And my favourite film? I have to go for The Silence of the lambs, I think Anthony Hopkins is just amazing!
Finally, what’s your favourite game?
I’m just playing Spider-Man and LOVING it but my favourite game is Super Mario 64 as it sparked my love of gaming.
