Candy Crush Saga, Crysis, Tale of Tales talks added to GDC Europe 2013

August 8, 2013 | By Staff

With GDC Europe 2013 two weeks away, organizers have highlighted new conference sessions, including's postmortem on mega-hit Candy Crush Saga, Crytek on Crysis's environmental art production, and Tale of Tales's sneak peek at three new projects as the studio looks into its last and next 10 years.

GDC Europe will take place Monday through Wednesday, August 19th-21st at the Cologne Congress-Centrum Ost in Cologne, Germany -- just ahead of (and co-located with) the massive 275,000 person Gamescom event, with all GDC Europe passes also guaranteeing entrance to Gamescom.

First up,'s Tommy Palm will present the 'Candy Crush Postmortem: Luck in the Right Places,' discussing the mega-hit casual game's genesis. Included in the talk will be how it progressed from "a small competitive flash game and a social envelope to adjust it to Facebook, with an aggressive cross-platform push onto mobile."

In 'The Next Ten Years of Tale of Tales' as part of the Independent Games Summit, studio co-founders Michael Samyn and Auriea Harvey will examine their artistic experiments such as Bientot l'ete, The Graveyard, and The Path from the past decade and share their hopes for the future, along with showing off three new projects. They will also discuss how they organize their artistic practice in video games, despite a discouraging commercial climate.

Lastly, Crytek senior 3D Artist Felix Leyendecker's 'Crafting the World of Crysis' will explore artistic and production lessons learned from every entry of the hit FPS series. Topics will include building large worlds through reusability and modularity, the distribution of responsibility among the team, and the cooperation between the art and level design departments.

Attendees can plan ahead for these and the other 80-plus sessions using the online schedule builder, and they can also browse the list of exhibitors appearing on the GDC Europe Expo using the current floor plan.

Online registration for GDC Europe is still available, with individual savings for VIP and All Access Passes compared to onsite prices. Group admission discounts are also available. For all the latest news on GDC Europe, subscribe for updates via Facebook, Twitter, or RSS.
