GC Developer Conference (GCDC)
(21-23 August 2006)
CEO of Stormfront Studios Inc., Don L. Daglow, held the first international keynote at this year's GCDC, Europe's leading developer conference, which opened on Monday with record participation. Those attending the conference in Leipzig will spend until Wednesday discussing future trends in the games industry with top international developers - and programming as a 'next-generation topic' is figuring highly.
"It's a great honour to be invited here to GCDC. The organisers are doing a wonderful job," said Don L. Daglow. During his keynote address entitled "Next Generation Game Development Designs" he stated: "I'm delighted to be allowed to be the first speaker at GCDC. With GCDC being such a high-level audience, I was happy to seize this opportunity. "
Another highlight on the first day was the presentation "Online Games: a Strategic Review of the Sector" by Paul Heydon, Managing Director of Unity Capital. "Particularly owing to the low production, advertising and distribution costs, the area of online games is becoming increasingly attractive to investors. The growing number of commercial takeovers of online gaming websites is a clear reflection of this development," declared Paul Haydon during his address.
Conference participant Dr Jörg Müller-Lietzkow from Friedrich Schiller University in Jena had the following to say: "GCDC is the most important networking event in the electronic games industry in Germany - and also the most important event in the year when it comes to ascertaining whether research is tackling the right areas. It's the interface between the games sector and the real world."
On 22 August, day two of GCDC, Peter Molyneux (Lionhead Studios) gave an introduction to "Inspirations for Next Generation Designs" in his keynote speech.
GCDC will continue until 23 August 2006.
