Overview: Louis Castle, a game industry veteran known best for co-founding (with fellow luminary Brett Sperry) the trailblazing Westwood Studios, will be coming to GDC 2019 to deliver a Classic Game Postmortem on the landmark real-time strategy game 'Command & Conquer'! Louis will be joined by Erik Yeo, lead designer for C&C and Frank Klepacki, Composer for C&C, and Steve Wetherill, C&C's VP of product development. It promises to be a fascinating hour-long deep dive into the conception, development, and design of 'Command & Conquer', a game that inspired a generation of game designers and helped popularize the real-time strategy game genre. As Westwood's co-founder, Castle was involved from the start, and at GDC 2019 in March he'll take the stage to share his experience and the lessons he took from it. He'll also share insights and anecdotes from key 'Command & Conquer' team members, so this is something you won't want to miss!
