Sumo Digital, Glu and Newzoo round out NASSCOM schedule

India's biggest game developer conference reveals full line-up

NASSCOM Game Developer Conference has revealed its full speaker line-up, featuring talks and workshops from Glu Mobile, Zynga, Sumo Digital, Unity, and the leading companies in the Indian games industry.

A day of workshops from Google, Unity and Glu Mobile, among others, will be followed by two days of talks spread over five tracks, covering indie development, game design, marketing, art and technology. NASSCOM's international speakers will be led by Zynga's chief visual officer, Henry LaBounta, the prominent indie developer Ste Curran, and the research firm Newzoo, which will premier its most detailed report to date on the rapidly growing Indian games market.

Anando Banerjee, the chairman of NASSCOM GDC, emphasised the importance of balancing stories of both "success and failure," the better to help India's emerging talent to navigate an increasingly difficult global marketplace.

As such, the full sweep of the Indian games industry is represented, from major companies with a local presence like Zynga and Sumo Digital, to local independent developers like June Software, SuperSike Games, 99Games and Lucid Labs.

"With a mix of India's independent games development industry and international speakers and delegates, this years program will provide attendees with a foundation of knowledge and networking opportunities that will help drive their studios," Banerjee said in a statement released today.

NASSCOM GDC will be held at the Westin Hotel in Pune, India, from November 5 to 7. For the full line-up, follow the link.
