Description

Brian Baglow 10am-11am

How Not to Make a Game

This is the story of Metal Hammer: Roadkill, the 'omnishambles' project and the poor men, women and companies who had to try and bring it to market.


Sam Davidson 11:15am-12:15pm

Exploring the Story

Exploring the Storytelling in video games is becoming a bigger part of what sets a good game apart from a great game. In the past we used to rely on player manuals and exposition dumps to let the player read the story like a book. This session will take a look at alternative techniques we can use to tell stories without actually making players read them.


Craig Barron 12:30pm-1pm

Strategies to Develop a Game on Time

Programming and art are very important parts to creating a game, however, it is very common to find that games get released late. Come and find out what strategies you can use to keep your game project on time without compromising quality.


Karolina Jacobsson 1:15pm-2:15pm

How to Breakdown, Understand and Replicate Art Styles

As an artist in the games industry, you will often be asked to work in an artstyle different to your own. For a lot of us, this is a hard and stressful thing to do. This talk aims to present a structured approach to dissecting and learning an art style, which can be applied across both 2D and 3D art.


Phil Harris 2:30pm-3:30pm

Everything Must End

The importance of an ending to a game, makes it different from play. This session will unravel the two and explain why something which appears to have no end, actually has many.


Stuart Gray 3:30pm - 4pm
