Media Molecule confirmed for Develop

Organisers of Develop in Brighton have announced that LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule will be interviewed by Phil Harrison during a keynote session at this year's conference.

Harrison, who signed LittleBigPlanet when president of Sony Worldwide Studios, will interview Media Molecule co-founders Alex Evans, Mark Healey and Kareem Ettouney in the conference's opening keynote, dubbed Living Inside A Molecule.

Andy Lane, MD of organisers Tandem Events, said: "We're delighted that Media Molecule is opening the conference this year. They are the pioneers of user-generated content and remain one of the most creative studios around.

"It will be fascinating to hear their stories from the trenches – and who better to help them relive their tales than the man who helped them on their way?"

Other keynotes at the conference will be given by SCEE's Mick Hocking on 3D, Andrew Wilson of EA Sports, Sony's Kish Hirani on developing for PlayStation Vita, Jagex's Kris Jones and more. Develop In Brighton runs from July 19 to 21 at the Hilton Metropole: for more, click here.
