Session Name The Journey from Paper Games to Digital Games - What Writers Have Learned
Speaker(s) Eric Goldberg, Sam Lewis, Angel Leigh McCoy, Sheri Ray, Thomas Reid
Company Name(s) Crossover Technologies, Zenimax, ArenaNet, Independent, Freelancer
Track / Format Game Narrative Summit
Overview Early in the computer game industry often the only place to find potential employees with game writing experience was the paper game industry. These writers went on to make the jump from pen and paper and bound rules books to digital interactive play. Today, we are lucky enough to have some of these original game writers still in the industry. In this panel we will talk to some of these industry veterans and find out what they have learned about games, both paper and electronic in their careers, and what lessons they would have us all learn.
