Jan-Bart Van Beek

Studio Art Director - Guerrilla Games

In this talk, Jan-Bart van Beek, the Studio Art Director at Guerrilla Games, will take you through the journey that studio had to make in order to design the majestic post-post-apocalyptic world of Horizon Zero Dawn. As the originator of the concept Jan-Bart is able to give a unique insight in what it is like to take a small, almost silly, idea and see it slowly developed into one of the most successful new gaming franchises of the year.
We will see the game, it’s world, it’s characters and it’s iconic robot dinosaurs, develop from just a couple of sketches, through prototypes and ultimately to a fully-fledged game.
