|Session Name:||Level Design in a Day: How We Used Iterative Level Design to Ship Skyrim and Fallout 3|
|Company Name(s):||Bethesda Softworks|
|Track / Format:||Production|
|Overview:||Huge, open world games like Skyrim and Fallout 3 demand a great deal of development talent, and can be daunting to plan and create - especially when subject to the constant and often unpredictable flux of a game in development. This level design oriented talk will share insights into the iterative approach used at Bethesda Game Studios to help their level design team plan, implement, test and polish massive amounts of content. The talk will also discuss how this approach allows the team to maintain their staff without having to hire and fire at the whims of the project cycle.|
