For the first time, Develop: Brighton will hold two keynotes.
The second talk from Bossa Studios will immediately follow the previously announced opening discussion between Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and PS4 system architect Mark Cerny on Wednesday July 13th.
CTO Sylvain Cornillon, COO Vince Farquharson and co-founder Imre Jele (pictured) from the Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread studio will speak on the subject of ‘Reach for the Sky: Why Disruptive Technology Deserves Disruptive Design’.
Bossa’s upcoming title Worlds Adrift will play a major part in the talk, with the dev explaining the tech behind its ambitious game.
Bossa, Kojima and Cerny join a host of studio speakers at the event, including Funomena, Supermassive, Space Ape, Google, Sony and writer Rhianna Pratchett.
Later, on Wednesday evening, Kojima will be named Development Legend at this year’s Develop Awards, and will be handed his prize by Cerny.
