David Cage Keynoting GDC Europe

David Cage, the CEO and founder of Quantic Dream will be giving the keynote address at the European Games Developers Conference next month. The speech, entitled “Writing Interactive Narrative for a Mature Audience”, might sound a little bit dry but when the man giving the lecture is the head of a company responsible for Fahrenheit and the upcoming Heavy Rain you will see that it could be a bit more interesting than first impressions suggest.

I have recently started my first ever playthrough of Fahrenheit in anticipation of Heavy Rain and whilst initially sceptical of the concept I have to admit that I am rapidly warming to the mechanics and the engaging and mysterious storyline.


Other speakers at the European developer’s get-together include Cevat Yerli (CEO, Crytek) who will be talking about graphics and Mattias Myllyrinne (MD, Remedy) who will talk about creating new IP. It looks like a very interesting lineup of some of Europe’s greatest development minds. The conference runs from the 17th to the 19th August as part of the hullaballoo surrounding Gamescom.
