Overview: Giz Gewirtz will explore the challenges of integrating the player experience into VR narratives, focusing specifically on the disassociation between character identity and the player's identity in virtual reality. He will outline the unique differences between VR storytelling and traditional game narratives, and provide practical tips and tricks on how to overcome those challenges. This talk will include real world examples of successes (and failures) in attempting to bridge the gap between traditional storytelling and experimental VR narratives.
