Heads up, game makers: 2017 Game Developers Conference organizers are excited to confirm that Riot Games will be backing a talk at the upcoming show that dives into the curious process of how the studio produces Champions for its mega-popular MOBA League of Legends.
Riot Games senior development manager Jeremy Lee will be delivering a talk on "Creating 'League of Legends' Champions: Our Production Framework Revealed" at GDC 2017 that promises to be a remarkable behind-the-scenes look at Riot's work.
If you attend Lee's talk you can expect to hear about Riot's production tools that can be adapted to your own projects. You'll also learn Riot's method for champion ideation, a framework for maintaining alignment, and their over-arching production framework from discovery to post-production. Expect an understanding of the journey of a specific champion from start to finish.
