Legendary videogame designer Jeff Minter will discuss his prolific career in games, from the founding of Llamasoft to TxK and Polybius.

We’re proud to welcome the legendary Jeff Minter (a.k.a. Yak) of Llamasoft fame to the Yorkshire Games Festival.

Jeff is the man behind the Atari Jaguar’s critically acclaimed flagship Tempest 2000, and Xbox Live Arcade’s celebrated Space Giraffe. More recently he has created the mesmerising TxK, on PlayStation Vita, and the mindbending, psychedelic VR experience Polybius (pictured above).
