Mike Bithell is speaking at the following session/s

Fireside Chat

Wednesday 10th July: 11.00 - 11.45 : Room 4

Having seen his latest game John Wick Hex enjoy a bounty of attention amidst the chaos and noise of E3, Mike will reflect on the experience of coupling the approach and mindset of indie development with the worlds of major licensed IP, large film companies and expos dominated by triple-A games. From the innovative ideas within John Wick Hex to its journey through the global spotlight, Mike will share exactly how the game came to be, and how he and the team seized the opportunity when it found itself enjoying a lot of attention.
