The Game Developers Conference Europe invites you to an open press forum with Keita Takahashi

Date: Thursday, 1 September, 2005

Time: 13:30 to 14:30

Location: Lonsdale Room, Cafe Royal by Le Meridien, 68 Regent Street, London

Takahashi-san took the game world by storm with his debut title, Katamari Damacy. In creating his game, Takahashi-san felt that there were too many videogames that looked alike, and that the videogame industry relied on sequels too much. In contrast, his game presents players with a refreshingly unique, genre-defying game design, in which the player rolls game objects into an ever-increasing ball, while working against the clock.

Join us next Thursday at the Game Developers Conference Europe to learn more about this industry innovator's achievements including his soon-to-be-released sequel: We Love Katamari.

Please note that Takahashi-san will also deliver a keynote address on Wednesday, 31 August at the Game Developers Conference Europe. Learn more at:
