Session Name Game Writing Fundamentals in a Day
Speaker(s) Evan Skolnick
Company Name(s) LucasArts
Track / Format Design
Overview A perennial GDC favorite, this dynamic, engaging presentation on the fundamentals of fiction writing is designed for anyone interested in improving the narrative quality of their games. Hosted by Marvel Comics writer/editor Evan Skolnick, the comprehensive, day-long tutorial offers writers and non-writers an opportunity to learn (or re-learn) the basics of good story structure, vibrant character development, snappy dialogue writing and more. Prior attendees of this tutorial - a broad mix of writers, designers, artists, animators, engineers and producers - have called it "amazing," "wonderfully paced" and "essential knowledge to further the medium."
