Three days of creative game jams, mind-blowing keynotes, interesting panels and talks and an intense bootcamp for start-ups and indie studios in the games industry -> explay 11 took place in the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK. And that’s what happend:
Ignon took part in Extended Play as conference speakers doing a talk about the success story of Liquorious and the rise of the penguin at the EUROPRIX Multimedia Awards 2010. We also showed a lot of our work to the huge audience and got a lot of really good feedback and comments on the projects we do.
Ignon also did a live performance at the official afterparty hosted by eatmusic with nasty “gamestep” tunes and eyeshattering visuals. You can watch the recorded video of the livestream here.
As a very special guest at Explay 11 Ian Livingstone, life president of Eidos and (god-)”father” of Lara Croft held an amazing keynote about his way to success from the start of the Games Workshop to Eidos, his relationship with Lara Croft and other successful games like Deus Ex and Hitman.

Alltogether we’ve spent some really interesting days at Extended Play 11 in Plymouth with lots of positive feedback, interesting input and of course party and fun.
