The first-ever XPO Game Festival will welcome Boss Key Productions’ Tramell Isaac and thatgamecompany’s Jacky Ke Jiang for keynote presentations, with the industry icons sharing their inspirations and how they first found their foothold in the industry.
They are joined by speakers that include Susan Arendt (GamesRadar), Candace Brenner (Daybreak Game Company), Nick Chester (Epic Games), The Coster Brothers (Butterscotch Shenanigans), Charles Cox (4Gency), Jake Baldino (Lead Producer/Host, Gameranx), Craig Kaufman and Steve Spohn (The AbleGamers Charity), Richard Mitchell (XPO, Joystiq), Monika Lee (Blizzard), Chris Rickwood (Rickwood Music), Paul Yoskowitz (WinterLeaf Entertainment), noted game journalist Robert Workman, and more.
But, what will excite most away from that is that Dan and Terry Diebold will place the Nintendo PlayStation on display. The father and son duo will showcase the fabled console at the convention, and will host a panel discussion in which they will share the story behind its discovery.
“We’re thrilled with the warm reception we’ve been getting from the gaming community. It goes to show that there’s a huge demand for events like XPO Game Festival in the Heartland,” comments Ray Hoyt, VisitTulsa and Office of Film, Music, Arts and Culture president Ray Hoyt. “I’m honored to have such talented gaming legends come speak at XPO. Hearing their stories and learning from each speaker first-hand will be quite a thrill for both our guests and XPO Game Festival organizers.”
