|Company Name(s):||Obsidian Entertainment, Schnoodle Media, LLC, Bigpoint GmbH, Independent, Zynga, Freelance|
|Track / Format:||Game Narrative Summit|
|Overview:||How do newer writers fit into game design and narrative design teams? Are in-house jobs better than freelance gigs? Do film writers have advantages over novelists in getting game writing gigs? Made especially for individuals with little experience and for those looking to break in, this session encourages participants to ask veteran writers and narrative designers questions without definitive answers, or answers that could be found in manuals or on the Web. Anyone who works with writers is also encouraged to attend. Whether it's finding the right job, leading writers and improving team dynamics, or establishing rates, no question about the business of game writing is off limits.|
