An international list of influential speakers contribute their expertise to this year’s Game Creation program, with the makers of Silent Hill and Heavenly Sword joining a host of other prominent game creators from the Nordic region and around the world

Intended for professional game creators and academics, this new, multidisciplinary program will examine the latest trends and techniques in game development and spotlight the region’s most innovative and respected talents.

Keiichiro Toyama, creator of Siren and Silent Hill, will join Rock Band’s Rob Kay, Tameem Antoniades, co-founder of Ninja Theory and moderator Tony Manninen in discussing creative innovation and new game niches in the session Disruptive Design.
