Industry legend Tim Schafer to take part in career chat at EGX Rezzed
Double Fine's Tim Schafer is heading to EGX Rezzed where he'll chat with Eurogamer.net editor Oli Welsh about his 30 year career in games.
Beginning his career in the late eighties with Lucasarts, Tim made key contributions to a number of hugely influential adventure games including the Monkey Island series, Full Throttle and Grim Fandago.
In 2000 Tim founded Double Fine Productions, a development studio and publisher that has played a role in releasing more than 30 games across multiple formats. Notable projects include the critically acclaimed Psychonauts, Brütal Legend starring Jack Black and remastered versions of several classic Lucasarts titles. The studio is currently working on a sequel to Psychonauts.
EGX Rezzed attendees will be able to watch Tim interviewed on-stage by Eurogamer editor Oli Welsh at 12pm (BST) on Friday 13th April. The session will be live streamed on Twitch and available to watch later on the EGX YouTube channel.
There will be opportunities to take part in meet and greet sessions with Tim across all three days of this year's event and attendees will also be able to get hands-on with three Double Fine Presents games - life sim Ooblets, hand-painted adventure Knights and Bikes and Gang Beasts, the silly multiplayer party game.
EGX Rezzed is London's biggest games event, featuring hundreds of playable games with a strong focus on PC and indie titles as well as talks by well known game creators, a career fair offering advice on getting a job in games, board games and more. Tickets are available here.
