Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning is set to host a keynote at next month’s DICE Europe 2013 summit. The event, hosted in London from 24 – 25 September, features a lineup of various big names in the gaming industry, including 22 Cans’ Peter Molyneux, EA Chief Creative Director Richard Hilleman, and Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli.
Lanning’s keynote, titled “Properties for the Apocalypse”, is described on the Oddworld.com blog as:
[taking] attendees on a journey across the macro intent of his studios historic design ambitions, their experiments in resonating with an increasingly disillusioned audience, why it’s a blessing that retail is dying, how increasingly fractured leisure time is changing the studios design focus, and why self-published indies have faith in embracing a new messiah model
The blogpost also mentions that the event will be streamed and will also be recorded, so don’t panic if you won’t be in London next month.
