Flower and Pure developers added to the event's initial batch 19 speakers

The upcoming GDC Europe event in Cologne will see guest speakers from the likes of indie talent ThatGameCompany as well as Black Rock, the Brighton-based developer behind Pure.

Black Rock’s Senior Programmer Eduardo Jimenez, meanwhile, will discuss the tension between strengthening AI in racing games whilst keeping play fair.

Added to the list is Brian Blau, Director of Developer Relations at Double Fusion, Zootfly's Bostjan Troha, as well as Joost van Dongen, Lead Programmer at Ronimo Games, the studio responsible for the 2D Wii RTS Swords And Soldiers.
