Adventure Games Creators Speak!

Just over a month ago, on the same day City of the Daleks would later pop up unexpectedly to be downloaded all over the British Isles, we told you about the Develop in Brighton Conference for video game developers coming up in about a week, and the fact that Doctor Who: The Adventure Games creators Charles Cecil, Sean Millard, and the BBC’s Simon Nelson and Iain Tweedale were likely to be in attendance.

Doctor Who - The Adventure GamesWe are now happy to confirm, thanks to (registration required), that these four speakers will indeed be present one week from today to deliver a keynote entitled Whodunnit: Bringing Dr Who to a PC Near You!  The session should hear the game-makers’ thoughts on the challenges, both creative and organisational, of making the series a success, as well as discussions on what Sumo Digital learned from working with the BBC, and vice versa.

If you have any interest in seeing these developers live, and will be in Brighton on Wednesday, 14 July (the day of this particular keynote), click here to purchase your tickets!  Keep in mind, if you feel like going to the conference for only the expo, which will likely have nothing to do with Doctor Who, you can always do that for free.  For a list of other keynotes, which feature legendary companies such as Rare and Bioware, go here.

The Develop in Brighton Conference will take place from 13-15 July.

    How much? Am I missing something here, or are the conference fees running at around £500 per day? Good grief!

    Well, more like £370 per person, at least on Wednesday. But yeah, that’s still quite a lot. It’s more aimed at companies and less at consumers, I assume.
