In Collaboration with the V&A

What does it take to build a world?

Parallel Worlds 2017 is a video game design conference in collaboration with the V&A, bringing together leading game designers, artists, engineers and thinkers, whose work is connected by the worlds we build through games and play.

Following on from last year's sell-out event, speakers this year include Nicola and Michael Place, members of the original design team for the 90s design classic Wipeout; Dan Calvert, character art director on the luscious Horizon Zero Dawn and Madiba Olivier, developer of Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan and founder of the first professional game studio in Central Africa.

The conference will follow on from the V&A’s Making Play Friday Late event on Friday 29 September, where playful installations, arcades and exhibits will take over the entire museum for one night only – including games conceptualised, designed and made by students and alumni from LCC's BA (Hons) and MA Games Design courses.

£25 full price, £20 concessions, £15 student.
