This year's European Game Developers' Conference gets underway in London this morning, with the first day of the three day conference featuring a number of tutorial tracks and the popular GDCE Mobile event.
Taking place in the new venue of the CafÃÂ® Royal, just off the bustling central hub of Piccadilly Circus in the heart of the city, GDCE will run through until Thursday and promises a wide range of keynote talks and sector-specific sessions.
Today's programme features the GDCE Mobile day, running alongside tutorial tracks in audio, game design and Microsoft game development, with the full programme getting underway tomorrow - and a distinct focus, for the first time, on next-gen development.
"I think we have some really amazing stuff that hasn't been done anywhere else this year, because we're coming in at a really great time in the cycle, right at the beginning," conference associate director told GamesIndustry.biz. "I can't really pick one session out, per se, but I think the breadth of things we're presenting is really great this year."
