Evolve in London conference full line-up announced

Evolve in London 2012


Tandem Events have confirmed the full line-up for the Evolve conference in London, taking place December 11, an event that aims to explore everything that’s cutting edge and innovative in game development.

As previously announced, Oculus Rift creator Palmer Lucky will deliver the keynote session (see our recent interview with the virtual reality innovator for more details on what he’ll be discussing). He’ll be joined by Microsoft Soho Production’s Rob Stevens who’ll deliver a session on the potential for interactive TV programmes, and Dlala Studios CCO Aj Grand-Scrutton who’ll offer advice on setting up your own indie studio.

Freelance journalist Stuart Dredge will explore how kids interact with touchscreens and what it means for future development, while Develop editor Will Freeman will chair a panel discussing Kickstarter’s effect on the industry and how long it’s likely to last.

On a similar topic, Red Glasses’ Adam Martin will deliver a talk on how business models and funding for games have changed in the past few years. Meanwhile, nDreams Patrick O’Luanaigh will focus on free-to-play, and how to make money from the model “without selling your soul”.

Our Edge Presents: Changing The Game breakfast briefing takes place ahead of the main conference, running from 8:00 to 10:00, and will feature Tadhg Kelly and Mark Sorrell, who will offer insight into the challenges facing today’s content creators, and valuable advice for overcoming them.
