"Define Game Design"

Renowned speakers for conference of the Red Dot Award confirmed

The gaming industry has advanced to become the most prestigious entertainment disciplines. Contemporary 3D applications, photo-realistic surroundings and new developments such as the Oculus Rift glasses are unthinkable without the innovative energy of game makers. Communication and advertising professionals are increasingly becoming aware of the potential of video games, but the pixel world is virgin territory for many, even technically well-versed designers, PR consultants and marketing managers. On 23 October 2014, “Define Game Design”, a conference with high-profile industry specialists, will set out to shed light on the state of play and will present technical and economic opportunities.
