Independent Games Summit: The Art of 'The Big Con'


The Art of The Big Con is an in-depth look at the development of Mighty Yell's vibrant multicoloured 90s adventure, The Big Con, from the perspective of their art director Saffron Aurora. This talk showcases the evolution of The Big Con's art style and the pipelines used in development, while also reflecting on the roles, responsibilities, and impact an art director has on a project. Part postmortem, part direction on art direction, this talk will take you back to a 90s only 90s kids and art directors with a really good mood board will remember.
