A few events in the UK related to Games Writing

I though people who visit here may be interested in a few events taking place in the UK in the coming weeks. First, I’m speaking on a games writing panel at this year’s London Screenwriters Festival on 25th October.  If you’re thinking of attending, check out the programme schedule.  Visit the website here. Second, that same weekend, 25th October, is…

My Talk at LAUNCH Conference

The talks from the LAUNCH Conference a few weeks ago have been posted.  My talk starts at about 5:14:00 but there’s a little problem with the sound in places.  I hope it doesn’t stop people understanding what I’m saying.

My Game Writing Lab at the London Screenwriters’ Festival

After an overview piece in my last post I thought I’d write something more about the game writing lab I conducted.  This was a workshop aimed at LSWF delegates who had an interest in discovering more about the details of game writing. After being invited to speak on the game writing panel at last year’s event I contacted the organisers…

Game Writing Lab – an update

Because the London Screenwriters’ Festival is primarily a screenwriting event, we decided to make the game writing lab as inclusive as possible in order to be fair to everyone who wishes to take part.  We have therefore modified the submission requirements. Please check it out and note that there are still ten days to submit your entries. Good luck! Related…

A Script Lab on Game Writing

I’ve been asked to run a script lab on game writing at the London Screenwriters’ Festival.  I’m really pleased with this opportunity to connect with people who’d like a bit more insight into writing for video games. Although the lab will be of great interest to would-be game writers, you must be signed up as a delegate of LSFW in…

Gamescom Interview

Here is an interview I was asked to do at Gamescom last week.  Miodrag Kovachevic asked some pretty interesting questions, so it was a real pleasure to talk with him.  I don’t often get the chance to talk in depth about game writing at an event like Gamescom so it was a welcome change to do so. Thanks Miodrag and…

Keynote Speech

I’ve been invited to give a keynote speech at this year’s International Conference on Entertainment Computing.  Although I’ve known for a little while, I was waiting for the official announcement on their website before posting anything.  If any of you are attending I look forward to meeting up with you and having a chat.

Video Interview from Gamescom

Adventure-Treff uploaded a video to their channel on YouTube in which I gave an interview at Gamescom. The grey hairs show up a bit too much in HD.  🙁

On Projects and Progress…

I’ve been so focussed on my various projects that I’ve been neglecting my blog somewhat, so this is an attempt to rectify that to a degree. It’s been just over a month since I announced Star Sweet and Honey Heart and considering the relatively short time-span it seems to be going well with awareness growing steadily. Not only is there…

Gamescom 2011

I’ll be attending this year’s Gamescom event in a couple of weeks’ time, which is always something to look forward to, both on a business and personal level.  Not only do I get to meet development colleagues and friends, it’s also a chance to see new games and talk with people who are kind enough to like the work in…
