I’ve been watching the talks given at GDC 2015. Some of them are very interesting and worth your time. The talks I listed bellow are the ones I most enjoyed but I encourage you to check out all the content available at GDC Vault because there are a lot of good talks that didn’t catch my attention.I’m also not giving any explanation on any of the links because they are most of the time self-explanatory.
If you don’t have time to watch all of them, watch at least the first one, about the choices made by the team at Uper One Games on how they made Never Alone. Have fun.
