The organizers of GDC Europe 2009 have confirmed a lecture from Microsoft Game Studios' European creative director Peter Molyneux, alongside several other new announcements for August 17-19th's major Cologne-based event.

Lionhead co-founder Molyneux will lecture on 'Choice: The Ultimate Game Mechanic', with the Black & White and Fable franchise creator showing "how choice can be a compelling game mechanic so long as player decisions have tangible effects on the game world."

In another notable lecture, former Half-Life 2 art director Viktor Antonov will speak about 'Creating Visual Identity for Games', and the production designer will "analyze the elements and tools that designers use to enhance storytelling and gameplay: space, architecture, light, color and stylization."

Another major just-announced panel is simply called 'Ask the Decision Makers: Find Out What Publishers Want And How To Get What You Want', and features senior executives from Capcom, Bruckheimer Games, Microsoft, Disney, Namco Bandai, Foundation9, and Paramount discussing how developers can stand out from the crowd, get meetings and secure deals.

Overall, GDC Europe (part of Think Services, as is this website) will offer a schedule of forward-looking panels, lectures and keynotes on game development across five tracks: business management, game design, production, programming and visual arts.

Other recently announced keynotes for the major European event include Crytek's Avni Yerli on the future of game graphics, GameForge CEO Klaas Kersting on monetization models, Remedy's Matias Myllyrinne on creating IP, and CCP's Hilmar Petursson on EVE Online and the company's new project.

"We're very proud to have such high level executives and veteran developers speaking on a wide variety of topics and trends that are vital to game developers in Europe," said Frank Sliwka, Vice President European Business Development of Think Services Game Group.

GDC Europe will be held in conjunction with the European GamesCom industry event for consumers, publishers, and trade professionals, and will take place August 17-19 at the Cologne Congress East Center in Germany.

The event will host more than 80 sessions addressing the needs and opportunities for developers and business professionals throughout Europe, and registration is open now, with its early discount ending at midnight on July 29th.
