|Overview:||In this talk, Jan-Bart van Beek, the studio art director at Guerrilla Games, will take you through the journey the studio had to take in order to design the majestic post-post-apocalyptic world of 'Horizon Zero Dawn'. As the originator of the concept, Jan-Bart is able to give unique insight into what it is like to take a small, almost silly, idea and see it slowly developed into one of the most successful new gaming franchises of the year. You will see the game, it's world, it's characters and it's iconic robot dinosaurs, developed from just a couple of sketches, through prototypes and ultimately to a fully-fledged game.|
