Exploding Kittens co-founder Elan Lee will be discussing the origins and impact of the iconic game, as well as sharing his thoughts on creativity and the lockdown, at a special session at this year’s Play Creators Conference.
The one-on-one interview, hosted by Mojo Nation’s Billy Langsworthy, will delve into how Elan and the Exploding Kittens team approach game design, including looking at their work with the inventor community.
Elan started his career at the Microsoft Games Studio where he was a Lead Designer on the original Xbox. He next co-founded 42 Entertainment (the company behind I Love Bees, Nine Inch Nails: Year Zero, and The Dark Knight). Elan was also the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Fourth Wall Studios, and the Chief Design Officer at Xbox Entertainment Studios.
From there, he went on to co-create Exploding Kittens, the most funded game on Kickstarter, and the most backed crowd funded project in history.
The session will go out in a special daily Mojo Nation newsletter during the first week of September (Tuesday September 1st – Friday September 4th) as part of Mojo Nation’s Virtual Play Creators Conference, with all content released during the week totally free to watch.
