Strap in for a Panzer Dragoon Classic Game Postmortem at GDC 2019!

This is a special Classic Game Postmortem because you get 2 speakers and not 1 but 3 Saturn games discussed in-depth: the original Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon Zwei and RPG Panzer Dragoon Saga.

Do you have a deep and abiding interest in classic games, the Panzer Dragoon series, the Sega Saturn, or all of the above? Then Game Developers Conference 2019 organizers have good news for you: 

Panzer Dragoon designer Yukio Futatsugi and artist Kentaro Yoshida, two Japanese game industry veterans who now work together at Grounding, will be at GDC in March to discuss designing and developing the Panzer Dragoon series on Saturn!

This is a very special Classic Game Postmortem because you get two speakers and not one but three games discussed in-depth: the original Panzer Dragoon (which was Futatsugi's debut as a game designer) as well as its follow-up Panzer Dragoon Zwei and the RPG Panzer Dragoon Saga, neither of which have ever been publicly deconstructed like this.

It promises to be a fascinating hour-long deep dive into the conception, development, and design of a seminal series, one that played a huge role in the life of the Saturn. Even if you aren't interested in the history and the stories, Futatsugi and Yoshida believe that some of the lessons learned in struggling with the cutting-edge hardware that was the Sega Saturn can still be put to good use in the modern age of game development.

For more information on this session and others, make sure to check out the GDC 2019 Session Scheduler. There you can begin to lay out your GDC 2019, which takes place March 18th through the 22nd at the (newly renovated!) Moscone Center in San Francisco.
