Deus Ex creator to be joined by Laura Fryer of Microsoft Games Studio, and the authors of Grand Theft Childhood
Alliance numérique, the organiser of The Montreal International Game Summit, has announced that Warren Spector will deliver a keynote speech at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, over November 18-19.
It was also announced that Laura Fryer of Microsoft Games Studio, and Cheryl Olson and Lawrence Kutner, the authors of Grand Theft Childhood, will also be keynoting the event. They will be joining David Braben of Frontier Developments, who was also announced as a keynote speaker earlier this month.
"I had a great time speaking at the Montreal International Game Summit a couple of years ago. The people I met, the quality and variety of the sessions I attended, the city itself and the vibrant development community I found there, all made the experience something special. I'm really looking forward to a return engagement as one of the keynote speakers this year," said Spector.
Olson and Kutner, commented: "We're excited about speaking at MIGS. Our presentation is based on a two-year, USD 1.5 million research study we conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The results fly in the face of what many politicians and pundits tell the public."
