He'll also discuss how this new indie world differs from designing a AAA game such as Fable, with a big team in a much more corporate environment. Danger is what design needs, and disruptive thinking is how we as an industry start to use some of the awesome technology that will appeal to the millions of new consumers we are creating games for. Peter's talk will challenge some of the outdated foundation stones of design, as he outlines how %u201Cout of the box%u201D thinking results in true innovation - and how the experience of working in big teams has shaped him into the designer that he is today, as an indie again.|
