Are you heading to the Develop Conference in Brighton this July? If you are then keep a lookout for Liam, one of our superstar Programmers here at Mm who will be at the conference giving a talk! Much excite!
In his talk titled ‘Challenging Conventions In Search of a Better Game’, Liam will be taking a look at the established expectations, best practices and common languages that have developed over time in the games industry and asking whether following the conventional wisdom is always the best route to take when making design decisions. He’ll help you to identify whether you’re making those decisions based on what came before, rather than what’s best for your game, along with finding inspiration in other games that have bucked the trend.
It sounds like a really interesting talk and it’s Liam’s first ever one *gasp* so let’s all give him a great big whoop of support and get booking your tickets! If you register now, you'll save yourself 20% if you book before 7th June. Liam will be speaking on Thursday 13th July at 4pm in Room 2 as part of the Design Track Sessions. Best of luck Liam :)
