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.
