A full program of the Digital Dragons Conference has now been revealed!

More than a hundred lectures and discussions divided into eight thematic tracks make up the
program of Krakow's B2B conference for the game industry - Digital Dragons. Among the
nearly 120 experts who together comprise the program, we will find both guests from abroad
and representatives of the largest Polish studios - Techland, CD PROJEKT RED or Flying Wild

These representations, meanwhile, include the developers of the biggest Polish games of last year, competing in various categories for Digital Dragons Awards statuettes - including Dying Light 2: Stay Human, Cyberpunk 2077 and Evil West.
Watch the Digital Dragons "Aftermovie" summing up the 2022 edition.


"It is extremely valuable that the developers of the best Polish games are involved in building the conference agenda. The audience is always thirsty for first-hand knowledge, from their own experience, and if it comes from working on the most famous titles - all the better for the listeners," says Maciej Sliwinski, program coordinator of the conference.

What will the invited guests talk about? Among the proposed topics we will find a full cross-section of game design issues. Among the lectures prepared by the Techland team there will be something for listeners interested in both the artistic and narrative aspect of game development, as well as the technological or business part of the process. Magda Jankowska will talk about designing open worlds in such a way as to stimulate players natural curiosity. Julia Szynkaruk's lecture will be about the difficult art of compromise - the audience will learn how Dying Light 2 managed to reconcile the vastness of its world and the quality of graphics with smooth operation on the older generation of consoles.

Quest designers from CD PROJEKT RED - Moritz Lehr and Pawel Sasko - will also talk about issues related to the creation of scenarios and game characters. Kuba Jankowski will discuss the legal aspects of using works produced with the help of AI, and Kacper Niepokólczycki - Lead Environment Artist - will explain how he reconciled the function of a team leader with the soul of an artist while working on The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077.

Creating a feeria of distinctive sounds for Evil West will be the subject of a lecture by Michal Korniewicz and Dawid W. Mika. His colleagues from Flying Wild Hog will also talk about the ways of conducting narration or constructing levels (Maria Borys-Piątkowska and Yasen Stoynev) or cooperation within the game development team (Tomasz Gop).Adrian Fuentes Vazquez, Design Director, will give a talk on the benefits of product thinking for game designers and how they can work with product teams to develop more effective tactics.

This is just a snippet of the conference's powerful two-day program, which will include at least seven hours of concurrent sessions in a minimum of seven rooms each day. The full agenda can be read at the organizer's website.
