He'll be giving a talk entitled "Putting the Pieces in Play" which will go behind the scenes with the LEGO creative teams, and include special previews of new projects.

Also on the billing are Rob Kay and Ryan Lesser from Harmonix, the company behind the hugely popular music title Rock Band, with special guests appearing on stage as well.

Ste Curran will present a session looking into the narratives within games, while Johnny Minkley from GamesIndustry.biz will moderate a panel session bringing some of the Nordic region's key developers together with publishers to look at the region's evolution.

Nordic Game 2008 takes place this year from May 14 - 15 in Malmo, Sweden, and registration is now open at the event website.
