A mix of international speakers and local heroes make up for an interesting line-up of the inaugural Control Conference, November 19 in Amsterdam. Experts from studios like Bungie, 343 Industries, CD Projekt RED and Unity will be accompanied by the likes of Vlambeer (Ridiculous Fishing) and Vanguard Games (HALO Spartan Assault).
The developer focused conference is being organized by Dutch developer publication Control Magazine, will feature tracks on Code, Game Design and Art and will be completely in English.
Co-founder and publisher of Control Magazine, Matthijs Dierckx: "We want to offer in-depth talks on development and create a kind of intimate atmosphere, making it easy for attendees to meet and discuss with their peers."
The conference aims to attract professionals as well as students. And for the latter, Control teamed up with incubator Dutch Game Garden, home to Vlambeer, Ronimo Games and Abbey Games (Reus).
The conference is offering separate sessions for students and juniors, although the keynotes will be accessible to everyone.
