Game Designer Tim Schafer To Give Keynote Speech at GCDC 2007

The GC Developers Conference (GCDC) today announced that Tim Schafer, President and CEO of Double Fine Productions, is giving a keynote speech on the subject of Creativity and Games at this year's event. Tim Schafer played a significant role in the development of LucasArts' classic games including Full Throttle, and, Monkey Island 1 & 2. At GCDC 2007, Europe's leading developer conference (August 20-22), he will be speaking for the first time in Europe. During his time at LucasArts, initially as game designer and later as head adventure programmer, he notched successes with cult games such as Day of the Tentacle, and Grim Fandango. In 2000, Schafer founded the development studio Double Fine Productions, whose very first game, the action adventure Psychonauts, for PC, Xbox and PlayStation 2, went on to become an award-winning hit. At GCDC 2007 his keynote will be dedicated to the challenges and methods of interjecting creativity into modern game design

Awesome. Psychonauts is among my top 5 fave games of all time and best game since Fallout 2 in quality terms and IMO. (Still consider its level design the best in history). His other works are also masterpieces.
Its great to see an exceptional developer back. Hopefully he has some news for us during GCDC and not just talking about gaming and industry which is cool but not enough... Give me Psychonauts 2 right now or I'll grill your brain!
