What’s New in the NetEase Games Developer Summit 2022?
The world of video games is constantly evolving, from both a production standpoint and in the ways the fans engage with their favourite titles. There is also a greater push for games to reach as many people around the world as possible, and for games to be available on many different platforms. This is changing how games are developed, as different markets need to be accounted for, both in terms of localization and promotion. The NetEase Games Developer Summit 2022 will involve industry veterans from around the globe, as they discuss their experiences working in the industry, their thoughts on the future of globalization, and explore the possibilities of AI and the Metaverse.
The NetEase Games Developer Summit 2022 event will be spread across three schedule sessions, focusing on Art, Game Design, and Programming. The guest speakers will include: Filip Coulianos, the Lead Designer for the multi-award winning It Takes Two, who will discuss the development of the game and the challenges that the small team faced when developing the game; Toshihiro Nagoshi, the President of Nagoshi Studios and former producer of the Yakuza and Judgment series, who will discuss how to bring culturally niche games into the growing global market; Gochi Suda, the founder of Grasshopper Manufacture and creator of the No More Heroes series, who will discuss the challenges that game developers face when maintaining a balance between their own personal style and the preferences of the marketplace; and Benjamin Diebling, Director of Motion Capture at Quantic Dream, who will discuss the growth and development of Quantic Dream’s industry-leading motion capture technology.
