|Overview:||Daniel Lutz, the game director behind Hitman GO, will be delivering a design postmortem on the wildly unexpected game concept of Hitman GO, an award-winning, extremely minimalistic turn-based strategy game with beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces. This presentation will show how we managed to come up with such a unique design among internal controversy, and how distilling the franchise to its core and working within well-established constraints has proven to be the most appropriate way to bring Hitman to a whole other level.|
