Tim Schafer, Telltale Games and David Helgason on board for Nordic Game 2013
Organisers behind this year's Nordic Game Conference have named Double Fine president Tim Schafer, Unity CEO David Helgason and Telltale Games as keynote speakers for the Malmo event.

Telltale Games' session – titled 'The Talking Dead: Voicing a Dynamic Narrative – will be delivered by not one, but four people, including Telltale writer Eric Parsons, 'sound guy' Jory Prum, and The Walking Dead voice actors Dave Fennoy and Nicki Rapp.

The panel talk will examine how The Walking Dead's detailed narrative came together, from writing to casting, recording and directing.

The stress of success

Unity CEO David Helgason, meanwhile, will deliver a session titled 'Extreme Success with Mobile: Challenges and Solutions.'

In his talk, Helgason will discuss the ways that developers can deal with success on new, connected platforms, and how studios can adapt their approach to production complexity, design, marketing, production values, monetisation and multiplatform strategy.

The Walking Dead

Tim Schafer has been confirmed as the opening keynote speaker for Nordic Game 2013, but the subject of his session has not yet been announced.

Double Fine is currently working on Kickstarted adventure game Broken Age, which will launch on PC, Mac, Linux, mobile and Ouya later this year.
