Matias Myllyrinne to discuss the challenges in balancing small teams with big IP

Remedy MD to keynote Euro GDC

Remedy Entertainment, the Finnish developer responsible for two Max Payne games and the upcoming Alan Wake, will see the company’s managing director deliver a keynote at this year’s Euro Game Developers Conference.

Matias Myllyrinne (pictured) will discuss issues surrounding new IP creation, speaking on the key principles that have guided Remedy in creating the Max Payne and Alan Wake franchises.

The managing director will also discuss the company’s desired balance to remain small and independent whilst developing high-profile games that can fight in a highly competitive market.

“GDC Europe gives us the ideal platform to present our ideas with the European game developer scene,” said Myllyrinne.

The event will open from August 17 to 19 at the Cologne Congress East Center in Cologne, Germany.

"Remedy revolutionized the action genre with Max Payne in 2001," said Frank Sliwka, vice president European business development of Think Services Game Group. "Their keynote exemplifies a success story of high quality games produced in Europe and enjoyed worldwide. We are honoured to welcome Myllyrinne to the stage.”

Eve Online developer CCP Games recently announced it will also send its CEO, Hilmar Petursson, to the conference to discuss the company’s past and future games. A full list of speakers can be found here.
