The 2019 Yorkshire Games Festival will be jam-packed with keynotes. Two days out of the five will be dedicated to talks, masterclasses and Q&A, with Media Molecule's Gem Abdeen, Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil, Motion Twin's Steve Filby, Llamasoft founder Jeff Minter, Image & Form's Brjann Sigurgeirsson having already been confirmed as speakers. The festival's Game Talks will also welcome back Keith Stuart and Jordan Erica Webber as hosts.
Alongside the keynotes on February 7th and 8th, the festival will be running business matchmaking event Up Your Fame, which aims to "facilitate collaboration, ideas, innovation and investment in animation, games, motion graphics, VFX, AR and VR."
The event will debut its Young Developers’ Conference in 2019, to "inspire and inform younger game makers." Running alongside the main event from February 6th to 10th, it's organised in partnership with BAFTA Young Game Designers.
