Molyneux, Schafer, Toriyama lectures confirmed for GDC

Tuesday, 2nd February 2010 16:53 GMT By Johnny Cullen


ThinkServices has confirmed a couple of new lectures for GDC in a month’s time.

First off, Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux will co-host a talk called “The Complex Challenges of Intuitive Design’” with studio designer Josh Atkins. They’ll be showing off a couple of aspects within Fable III in the lecture.

Tim Schafer’s talk is called “‘Make ‘Em Laugh: Comedy in Games,” which will feature Overlord writer Rhianna Pratchett and Sean Vanaman of Telltale, and will, quite obviously, talk about comedy and humor in games.

And as first mentioned at the weekend, Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama will be talking about the story of the RPG in a lecture that hasn’t been named yet.

Last week, Sid Meier was confirmed as the first of the two keynote speakers for the event.

The second is expected to be confirmed soon.

GDC takes place from March 9 – March 13.

Steph’s going to be there for us, so you’d be a fool to miss anything.

Thanks, Gama.

    I wish I could be there for the Molyneux and Schafer talks. They’re both great people.

    Is Rhianna Pratchett funny? The only laughable thing of hers is the plot for Mirror’s Edge.

    Tim Schafer’s relevance is approaching 0 for me, thanks to the trainwreck that was Brütal Legend.
