Media Molecule’s founders will discuss the development of their upcoming creative adventure game Dreams during the latest keynote announced for Develop:Brighton 2019, which takes place 9-11 July at the Hilton Brighton Metropole.
The celebrated British game studio’s founders, Siobhan Reddy, David Smith, Kareem Ettouney, Alex Evans and Mark Healey, will take part in a fireside chat titled ‘Creating Dreams with Media Molecule’ on Wednesday 10 July.
“Since we launched Dreams into Early Access earlier this year players have been constantly surprising us with their creations,” said Media Molecule studio director Siobhan Reddy. “It’s amazing what people are capable of making, even after just a few months!”
“We can’t wait to join our friends in the game dev community down in Brighton to discuss how our incredible team made Dreams.”
The Media Molecule team joins No Man’s Sky director Sean Murray and Rebellion Developments co-founders Chris and Jason Kingsley as keynote speakers. Develop:Brighton 2019’s final keynote speaker will be announced soon.
“Media Molecule is a studio dedicated to the creation of games that inspire players to create themselves, and this lively keynote is sure to inspire attendees in much the same way,” said Andy Lane, managing director at conference organiser Tandem Events.
Develop:Brighton 2019 is attended by more than 2300 members of the game development community and will play host to more than 100 speakers giving talks and roundtable discussions. The conference schedule can be viewed here.
