Session Name: Bringing Fantasy to Life in 'Final Fantasy XV'
Speaker(s): Dan Inoue
Company Name(s): Square Enix
Track / Format: Game Narrative Summit
Overview: Once upon a time, fantasy stories were evergreen, locked in the timeless safety of their tropes, their canon immune to real-time promotional developments and pre-release companion projects. This talk will discuss how "a fantasy based on reality" came to reside in the real world, and what rules were made and broken to maintain a cohesive, coherent narrative amid swathes of information. Come learn how the fantasy came to life.
