Nottingham’s GameCity event has secured Media Molecule as the presenters of this year’s BAFTA Vision Statement.
The slot, which allows innovative developers a chance to share their insight with assembled game creators and fans, was helmed by Oddworld Inhabitants’ Lorne Lanning in the event’s first year, and by Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi in 2007.
"We’re deeply excited that Media Molecule have agreed to deliver this years headline. The Vision statement was conceived as an event that delivers a unique insight from the most innovative voices in the industry, so having the creators of LittleBigPlanet here reinforces that reputation hugely," said Iain Simons, GameCity director.
Media Molecule’s Alex Evans added: "The first GameCity festival was actually Media Molecule’s very first public appearance, so we’re thrilled to be able to return now having shipped LittleBigPlanet. For us, GameCity is a rare opportunity to really interact and meet with the people who play – and in LBP’s case, help to create – our games."
The BAFTA Vision Statement takes place at Saturday November 1st at 2pm at Gatecrasher, Nottingham. More details can be found at the GameCity website.
