The talk covered key lessons from Virtuos’ experience working on console games and Online MMOs. “With one of China’s largest game animation teams, Virtuos is in a unique position to work on Western and Chinese games, and cross-pollinate skills between the two game styles,” said Pan Feng.

Virtuos’ Sound Director Yang Jie also spoke at the event, at a panel about game music and sound outsourcing.
