Media Molecule, Insomniac leaders to speak at DICE 2014

The list of speakers at this year's DICE Summit will include Media Molecule's Rex Crowle and Insomniac Games' Ted Price, the conference's organizers announced today.

Crowle most recently served as the creative lead of Tearaway, the papercraft adventure released last fall on PlayStation Vita. In a DICE session called "Using the Ordinary to Create the Extraordinary," Crowle will discuss the use of everyday objects as the basis for a fantasy world, as in the design of Tearaway.

Price (photo above) is the president and CEO of Insomniac, which is currently working on the Xbox One-exclusive title Sunset Overdrive. He will give a lecture about leadership at DICE called "Trust & Ballz: Walking the Creative Tightrope."

DICE 2014 will also feature talks from Boris Sofman, CEO of Anki Drive developer Anki, and Gilman Louie, partner at the venture capital firm Alsop Louie Partners and formerly Hasbro Interactive's chief creative officer. In addition, NBA Jam creator Mark Turmell will moderate a discussion between Mark Cerny, lead system architect of the PlayStation 4, and Eugene Jarvis, who is this year's recipient of the Pioneer Award from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. "A Renaissance of Gaming or Just More of the Same?" will focus on the evolution of the game industry.

DICE 2014 will take place Feb. 4-6 in Las Vegas.
