Alex Evans confirmed for D.I.C.E. Summit

Media Molecule co-founder to give talk on creative gaming

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences has announced that Alex Evans, Media Molecule co-founder, will speak at the 2009 D.I.C.E. Summit, at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, over February 17-20.

The event will feature input from the LittleBigPlanet creator on creative gaming, who will appear alongside Chris Taylor, creative director of Gas Powered Games, Todd Howard, game director at Bethesda Studios, and Bruce Shelley, co-founder Ensemble Studios.

"Our take on 'Creative Gaming' is that it's an incredibly broad church, and LittleBigPlanet represents our particular first take on user generated content," explained Evans. "The D.I.C.E. Summit gives us the opportunity to present our design philosophy to the industry in the most prestigious forum today."

Joseph Olin, president of AIAS, added: "The incredible achievement that Alex Evans and his colleagues at Media Molecule accomplished with Little Big Planet is the perfect topic for this year's conference."

"The D.I.C.E. Summit line-up is the strongest yet featuring many of the speakers that are defining our industry and laying the groundwork for future generations of game creators."
