Purdue Liberal Arts alumnus Scott Phillips shared his experiences in the video gaming industry during a Giant Leaps Series event, "Creating Assassin's Creed Odyssey," held in Stewart Center's Fowler Hall on Sept. 24, 2019.

A 2001 graduate with a bachelor's degree in fine arts, Phillips has spoken at the Game Developers Conference, traveled the world to promote games, and contributed to several multimillion-selling games as an artist, animator, and designer. Most recently, Phillips was the game director for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Odyssey.

Phillips addressed the development of Odyssey, the history and research used to create the game, and its relevance to modern life. He also offered a peek into the future of video games.
