The first Nova Games Conference, created “by developers for developers,” will take place on June 27-28th in Gateshead. It’s the first event organised by the newly founded Nova Games Collective , the official games collective for the North East of England, that is focused on bringing new gaming-focused events to the area and championing the games and ideas that come out of the region.
Nova aims at linking designers, developers, gamers and studios through meet-ups, conferences, podcasts and online support, with the support from local companies such as Pocket Money Games, Hammerhead, Sumo Digital, Atomhawk, High Tea Frog and People Can Fly.
Speakers for the first Nova Games Conference, hosted at the Proto building, include Paul Colls (design director at Sumo Digital), Erin Bower (head of content at Dimension) and Mark Sample (senior producer at King), with many more to be confirmed.
