EGX Rezzed 2015 announces Valve developer session

Plus! Heat Signature! Prison Architect! The Banner Saga! More!

Valve stalwart Chet Faliszek will deliver a developer session at EGX Rezzed 2015, the UK event dedicated to PC, indie and console gaming.

Faliszek is one of the main writers at Valve, and has worked on the likes of Half-Life, Portal, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Left 4 Dead. (Hey, Chet, where's Left 4 Dead 3, eh?)

He's also no stranger to Gamer Network events - at the Eurogamer Expo 2012 he did a developer session on how to give yourself a job in the game industry. Check it out in the video below.
