Attend GDC Europe and learn how  Master of Orion  was rebooted for 2016

Attend GDC Europe and learn how Master of Orion was rebooted for 2016

May 17, 2016 | By Staff

GDC organizers are working with top game industry talent to line up great talks for this year's GDC Europe conference in Germany, and today they'd like to tip you off to one such talk from the folks at Wargaming about rebooting the classic game Master of Orion.

Come August, GDC Europe 2016 attendees will have the chance to check out "Alien Cultures: Rebooting 'Master of Orion' with a Global Team" and get an in-depth look at the process of rebooting a beloved strategy game in a way that both satisfies diehard Master of Orion fans while simultaneously showcasing the appeal of space strategy games to a new audience.

Wargaming's Chris Keeling and Jacob Beucler both worked closely on the project, and in their talk they'll discuss how the Master of Orion team overcame obstacles and managed remote third-party teams across multiple languages, time zones, and cultures. 

Early birds can still register for GDC Europe 2016 by July 20th to save up to 200 euros on an All Access Pass. The conference itself will take place August 15th and 16th at the Cologne Congress-Centrum Ost venue in Cologne, Germany.

GDC Europe 2016 will also continue to offer business and matchmaking opportunities to all attendees with a developer-focused Expo Floor area and networking events throughout the show. For more information, please visit the GDC Europe website.
