Dates for the Nasscom Game Developers Conference 2015 (NGDC 2015), India's premier industry event for game developers and publishers alike, have been announced. This year, NGDC will take place between November 5 to November 7 at the Westin Pune.
As always, Nasscom promises a host of industry legends and experts who would be taking to the stage and sharing their insights on game development. Headlining this year's event are Academy Award-nominated Henry LaBounta and freelance game designer, Ste Curran according to a mailer sent by Nasscom to game developers.
LaBounta's credits include visual direction for entries in Electronic Arts' FIFA and Need for Speed franchises as well as films such as Mission: Impossible II and Minority Report. He currently is Zynga's Chief Visual Officer.
As for Curran, he has consulted on a host of projects including critically acclaimed games such as Volume and Sunset through his company, Agency.
And this is just the beginning. A representative for Nasscom informed us that more speakers will be announced closer to the event. You can check out more details at the official site.
Last year's NGDC saw a host of interesting perspectives from industry juggernauts such as Google and Rovio, both of whom seem to have doubled down on their efforts in the country. With events like Pocket Gamer Connects giving NGDC some stiff competition, in terms of value Indian developers can gain, we're more than curious to see what else NGDC has in store this year.
