The Festival of Games is a combination of several game-related events, aimed at developers, publishers and investors in the gaming industry
The Stichting Nederlandse Gamedagen (NLGD) has announced that industry icon David Perry will deliver a keynote speech during the 2010 Festival of Games. Perry is the founder of GAIKAI, a company that will launch a new form of gaming this year. He also founded Shiny Entertainment, and designed such classics games as Earthworm Jim, MDK and The Matrix. At the conference, Perry will not only demonstrate the streaming game technology, which will launch in 2010, and share his vision on the future of gaming. GAIKAI's technology allows games to be streamed from a server via the internet into peoples' homes. This does away with installing software locally, and even makes upgrades to user hardware a thing of the past. Even graphical intensive titles such as Grand Theft Auto IV are playable on any system with an internet browser.
