Brink, Oregon Trail, and Crysis 2 talks announced for GDC Europe

GDC Europe organizers announced the first talks today for the conference, which takes place August 15-17 in Cologne alongside gamescom.

Splash Damage's Neil Alphonso will provide a talk on Brink's design goals through "managing practical implementation solutions in the game design." The session is called: "You Say You Want a Shooter R(evolution)".

Blue Fang Games' Hank Howie will discuss how to go from the traditional games space into social realm in a session titled: "From Console to Facebook: Blue Fang Games and the Big Pivot".

Crytek's Peter Hall will also speak regarding the development process of Crysis 2's multiplayer, and how to "manage challenges that arise with working with large programming teams." The session is called "Crysis 2 Multiplayer: A Programmer's Postmortem." Two studios and over 100 programmers contributed to the multiplayer portion of the game.

More sessions are to be revealed over the next few weeks.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
