Perth Writers Festival

The Game Changers

Sat 22 Feb 2014

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? 

ABC TV’s Good Game stars Bajo and Hex will speak with the creators behind the hottest games. International guests include Ubisoft writer Clint Hocking (Far Cry 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory), 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).
