'The Importance of Narrative in Games' seminar.

As part of their "Visionary Sessions" series, Northwest Vision and Media present ‘The Importance of Narrative in Games’, a discussion led by Matt Costello.

Matt's best-selling and award-winning work across all media has meshed game play, technology and story. He is the writer and creator of groundbreaking TV, novels, non-fiction books and games in both the U.S. and U.K. and has scripted dozens of best-selling games such as The 7th Guest, Shellshock-Nam ‘67, Bad Boys 2 and Doom 3 (winner of five awards at E3 including the Game Critics Award: Best of E3).

Matt has also been an interactive and creative consultant for clients, including James Cameron’s Titanic, the BBC, PBS and The Disney Channel.

The evening will also launch a course on structuring scriptwriting for videogames run by scriptwriting agency International Hobo. For more information on this course please contact Amalie Roberts.
