The first speakers for the Develop Live conference have been confirmed, with British crime writer Christopher Brookmyre leading the line-up.
Due to be held on October 2nd, Develop Live is the first event of its type to be organised and curated by the team behind Develop magazine and its website.
In a session entitled 'From novel to game and back again', Scottish author Brookmyre will be discussing his latest novel Bedlam, which he is currently adapting into a video game with the help of Brighton indie dev RedBedlam.
“Working with games developers has been one of the most creatively rewarding experiences of my writing career, so I’m thrilled to be invited to talk about the process at Develop Live – and I’m particularly delighted that I’ll be doing so at the first Develop event in Scotland,” said Brookmyre.
The writer is just one of a wave of speakers confirmed for Develop Live, which include experts from DeltaDNA, Dimensional Imaging, Speech Graphics, Newcastle University, Ludometrics, Outplay Entertainment, Chunk and more.
