Plans for this year's GDC Europe conference in Cologne, Germany are coming together nicely, and today GDC officials are excited to announce another pair of great talks for the upcoming August show.
As part of the GDC Europe Independent Games Summit, Marius Winter (one half of the German game development duo Major Bueno) will step onstage to discuss how a documentary film crew and Major Bueno visited 11 members of the European indie game community (including Bounden creator Adriaan de Jongh, Proteus developer Ed Key and more) on a seven-week road trip to shed light on the creative process of indie game makers.
As part of the trip Major Bueno created a new game with each of their hosts, and at GDC Europe Winter will share their learnings about indie game development and offer meaningful advice for developers, film makers, and anyone working in a creative field. Don't miss their talk, "Tour Bueno - A Quest To Understand Creativity," where they'll recount their adventure.
Speaking of adventures, GDC Europe is proud to be hosting a talk on the production realities of releasing a game every week -- or even every day -- titled "The Weekly Adventure: News-Driven Interactive Storytelling Challenges and Techniques." Nico Nowarra and Thomas Franken from Experimental Game GmbH will offer specific advice on how contemporary game makers can retool their production pipelines to achieve weekly or even daily release cycles, and demonstrate how their company's Gamebook technology helps developers overcome the challenges that come with such rapid development.
These are just two of the many exciting sessions that will be announced for GDC Europe 2015 in the coming weeks, and early birds can register for GDC Europe 2015 by July 8th to save 200 euros on an All Access Pass. The conference itself will take place August 3rd and 4th in Cologne, Germany.
Of course, GDC Europe 2015 will also continue to offer business and matchmaking opportunities to all attendees with a developer-focused Expo Floor area and networking events throughout the show. For more information, please visit the GDC Europe website.
