Game development at GDC Europe 2009

In exactly one week the Game Developers Conference 2009 opens its gates and offers a three days agenda regarding development, design, distribution and more of computer games. Here‘s a small abstract what we can expect in Cologne from 17th to 19th of August:

  • Monday morning, sessions will be offered from 9:00h am to 6.30h pm. At the same time, you can have conversations with the exhibtors in relaxed atmosphere from 10:00h am to 6:00h pm. This is also valid for Tuesday; however, on Wednesday the last session finishes shortly after 4:00 pm.
  • On Monday at 11:20 am it will become really interesting for the first time: Crytek‘s CEO Cevat Yerli holds his keynote presentation with the title "The Future of Gaming Graphics". One part of his speech will strive CryEngine 2, and he will also talk about rendering technologies of complicated 3D subjects.
  • On Tuesday you shouldn‘t miss the keynote speech of David Cage. David is CEO of Quantic Dream who is responsible for the 3D game Indigo Prophecy. The title of his talk: "Writing Interactive Narrative for a Mature Audience". Let‘s cross fingers that he will share an insight behind the scene of long awaited Heavy Rain.
  • The highlight on Wednesday morning will be the keynote session of Klass Kersting of Gameforge. Klass will talk about business models, at least that‘s what we can expect if we look at the title of his speech: "Changes in the Games Industry – Free-to-play versus Payment Models".

Besides these interesting keynotes there will be plenty of tech sessions where the receptive listener will be informed in detail about new technologies and trends of game development. If you want to know which of these sessions I will attend you should read my tomorrow&aposs GDC‘09 blog post.

BTW: I will not only participate at all these sessions but also blog about them. Moreover I will do live interviews with the help of Tom Papadhimas who will bring his video camera to Cologne. So you can watch and listen to the leading heads of the gaming industry as if you were at GDC’09. We are really looking forward to this event – and hopefully you do as well.
