Lyst Summit 6th-8th June 2014, Copenhagen.
Lyst is a conference that celebrates and centers around the topic of
romance, love, and sex in games.
These topics are somewhat still controversial in games and we want to have games developed with more diverse stories, themes and game mechanics.
The off-beat nature of the conference fits with the venue:
A boat, William Jørgensen, in Copenhagen harbor.
We need creative new-thinkers, fun and experimenting people to join our summit. Are you one of those? Or do you know someone who might be? Please sign up
P.s. there will be a chocolate fountain!!
The Lyst Summit is all about idea creation and experimentation. Even though the subject is serious, the summit is playful and inviting and will yield great ideas and prototypes.
The endeavour of going to a boat and dedicating yourself to the subject of Romance, Love and Sex in games will undoubtedly give an experience of a lifetime.
Our diverse, carefully chosen network of creative individuals inside and outside of the games industry forge invaluable relationships and perhaps future collaborations, over the course of three days.
This summit aims to bring light and love to a somewhat controversial subject in games; even though romance, love and sex are some of the most natural aspects of human behaviour, it is not portrayed very often, or very well in games. We want to bring artists, developers, sound artists and creatives from inside and outside the industry together to celebrate, discuss and create within this marvelous topics.
A funky concept needs a funky venue.
This is why we are hosting the summit on an old and cosy ferry.
We call it the "Love Boat Experience". Corny? Ohh yes! Cosy and inspiring? For sure!
