Developer Sessions 2017

The Developer Sessions bring you face-to-face with world renowned game creators as they present their latest projects, take part in panel discussions and answer your questions. All sessions will be live streamed on the EGX Twitch channel and will be available to watch later on the EGX YouTube channel.

The schedule is work in progress and will be updated as we reveal new sessions!

Thursday 30th March

1pm: William Pugh. William Pugh (Crows Crows Crows / The Stanley Parable) tells stories from navigating the games industry & avoiding death at the hand of publishers. He has seen horrifying things and will reveal ALL!!

2pm: Divinity: Original Sin 2. Origin stories are a new feature in Divinity: Original Sin 2 that enrich the co-op and single-player experience by giving characters compelling - and sometimes competing - motivations to fulfil their own destiny. Swen Vincke's (Larian Studios founder) panel will address the challenges of building fully-fledged narratives that play nice inside the main story when the characters themselves don't, all while leaving room for players to create their own experiences from scratch.

3pm: Rock, Paper, Shotgun presents: Knights & Bikes. Foam Sword - developers behind the charming and energetic eighties-inspired Knights and Bikes - join RPS on stage. We'll be talking about knights, bikes and the process of turning childhood memories into inspiration for a new game.

Saturday 1st April

12pm: Dean Hall from RocketWerkz. Dean Hall, the original creator of DayZ and founder of RocketWerkz, goes in-depth on the studio's new game and takes questions from the audience.

2pm: Xenonauts-2. Chris England from Goldhawk Interactive joins Eurogamer's Chris "Strategy King" Bratt to chat about the latest Xenonauts-2 developments.

3pm: Yooka-Laylee. Join developers from Playtonic as they play through the opening stages of this wonderfully colourful 3D platformer before taking your questions. This is a worldwide exclusive session and the only chance you'll have to see the final version of Yooka-Laylee before it's released.
