The Edinburgh Interactive Entertainment Festival has announced its full lineup of events and game screenings. The festival will present a number of lectures and sessions, in addition to a few select premiere looks at games making their UK debut at the festival.
Among the premiering games are The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
, Battalion Wars
, and Nintendogs
from Nintendo; though the games have been seen or even released in other territories, the title have not been publicly shown in the UK as yet. Others set to appear are Peter Molyneux's The Movies
, independent titles Darwinia
, and licensed games Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit
and Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
A few of the more interesting sessions are Ian Livingstone's discussion of "Games Culture - From Geek to Chic; a look at SCEE's EyeToy: Kinetic
, developed with Nike Motionworks; Mark Green's presentation of the making of 24: The Game
; and Brian Baglow's cheekily-named presentation "Made in Scotland: Scotland is the new Japan."
The EIEF will be held at the Edinburgh International Conference Center from August 10-14th. Information on tickets and registration, as well as a full schedule of events, can be found at the official EIEF site
