Splash Damage invading GDC 2011

February 10, 2011

GDC 2011 is drawing near and we’ll be sending a few people out there to spread the game development gospel. If you’re headed to GDC this year, keep an eye out for these:

  • First up is a talk titled Punching Above Your Weight: Small Art Teams, Big Games, which will have our Lead Character Artist Tim ‘spacemonkey’ Appleby and Technical Artist Paul ‘Mop’ Greveson detailing the processes used to realise Brink’s characters and the extensive customisation system.
  • Elsewhere, Audio Director Chris ‘peaceful_warrior’ Sweetman will be part of a panel called Four Guns West, which is all about weapon audio design in modern first person shooters.
  • And for the level designers among you, Lead Designer Neil ‘Exedore’ Alphonso is set to be part of a tutorial on the matter, titled Level Design in a Day: Best Practices from the Best in the Business.

GDC 2011 kicks off on 28 February at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information, check out the GDC website. We hope to see you out there!
