Nordic Game is back with a twelfth edition on 20-22 May 2015 in Malmö, Sweden. The most relevant games industry conference in Europe opens for registration today with a first batch of exciting news: RPG design legend Chris Avellone is among the first announced speakers, and an offer you can’t refuse.
NG15 has a double mission
The Nordic Game conference was created to serve as a hub for Nordic game developers, giving the community opportunities to grow, strengthen and tighten bonds. But also to offer the rest of the global industry a chance to join in and savor that special Nordic gaming flavor.
So for 2015 you can expect a refined blend of well known Nordic Game components: Three days packed with stimulating speaker sessions and panels, an exciting Expo floor and a wealth of networking opportunities such as Pitch & Match, Investing in Games Summit, Nordic Game Indie Night and Gala Dinner, as well as this year’s Nordic Game Awards and renowned Nordic Party.
First speakers announced
We’re very proud to present Chris Avellone, creative director at Obsidian, as the first announced keynote speaker. Avellone was lead designer on Planescape: Torment and has since then worked on a host of influential RPG’s, including Baldur’s Gate, Fallout and Neverwinter Nights. Chris is joined by Child of Light lead programmer Brie Code from Ubisoft, Cara Ellison, writer at The Guardian and Rock Paper Shotgun, and Swedish industry guru Per Strömbäck, who will moderate the panel “Founders of the Nordic Games Industry”. All are confirmed and ready to take the stage at Slagthuset in May; many more will be announced in the coming weeks.
Strength through community!
The Nordic Game conference is also part of something bigger: The new Nordic Game Community, an online meeting point and service platform for the Nordic games industry. As a member you can play an active part in our community forum, and membership also offers some really splendid discounts on game events, products and more.
So, are you ready to attend NG15 for half-off the entrance price? Sign-up for NG Community membership before you register for the conference. It’s free and very easy to do, but hurry up – the offer ends on 28 January.
