Video games have exploded into our culture (sometimes literally), earning double the annual revenue of movies. They have also become wondrously diverse, ranging from shoot em' ups like Call of Duty to sophisticated stories like Bioshock Infinite to offbeat indie games. Simple ideas like "avoid ghosts" have evolved into complex storytelling not unlike what you find in literature and drama.
Video games require writers, but they must understand storytelling craft as well as the games' multidimensional and technical demands. Here you will learn about the intricacies of the medium, structuring a story, crafting a script, world-building, and navigating the video game industry.
We'll show you how to write (and create) awesome video games, be it a sweeping epic or a time-killer for your phone. This is a 1-day, 11am-6pm intensive.
