Rare to deliver Develop motion control keynote

Thursday, 29th April 2010 11:06 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Rare’s George Andreas is to deliver a keynote at Develop in Brighton based on motion controls.

The session, called “The Future IS Controller-Free Games and Entertainment”, will see him talk about creating its first big launch title for Project Natal.

He also warned over old-school developers on gaming design: “Everything you’ve learnt over the last 25 years – throw it away!”

Yesterday, Double Fine’s Tim Schafer was announced yesterday for the event, while BioWare bosses Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk will deliver the main keynote at the event.

Develop takes place between July 13-15.

Thanks, Develop

    The future may well be controller free games, but then you’d need an entirely virtual environment in which to play them, not unlike a holodeck. Even then, you’d still want to be able to pick stuff up and have tactile interaction.

    As for throwing away everything from the last 25 years – I doubt even Mr Andreas truly believes that.

    Them’s fightin’ words, Mr Andreas! :-D

    I’ll be interesting to see what they present, but I’m totally sceptical about the entire thing.

    I think he’s right that most current game design is useless for this stuff.

    I’m yet to be convinced that ‘controller free’ is even remotely viable for games. There seems to be no advantages at all and whole lot of drawbacks. The lack of buttons being the most obvious.
