Returning for its tenth year at GDC, the Level Design Workshop offers an all-day series of talks covering topics across the vast spectrum of this crucial aspect of game design. Historically, LD Workshop presentations run the gamut from sharing specific techniques, to in-depth analysis of shipped games, to introspective explorations of "big" concepts that affect level designers/teams, as well as providing guides to process and workflow. The LD Workshop organizers have curated a diverse mix of established and emerging voices from all corners of the level design world to present an entertaining and enlightening agenda of talks for attendees.
