Video games now rival Hollywood as the most influential of the entertainment industries. From Grand Theft Auto to The Last of Us, games feature elaborate narratives set within epic worlds. You control the gameplay, but who writes and develops the stories?

International guests include Ubisoft writer Kevin Shortt (Watch_Dogs), designer and writer Steve Gaynor (Gone Home, BioShock Infinite), and developer and writer Dan Pinchbeck (Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture) and Jill Murray (Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and IV: Black Flag).
