The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Game Narrative Summit: Storytelling Siblings: The Kindred Connection between Games and Theme Parks


STORYTELLING SIBLINGS explores the familial relationship between the Games and Theme Park Industries, as told by a trio of Themed Entertainment professionals. The session will consider the unique affordances and challenges of games versus destination entertainment experiences like theme parks, interactive theater, brand centers, and spectaculars... while skimming the deep, tangled history of borrowing and adaptation between the two industries. (They have a lot more in common besides just overusing the word "immersive.") With the growing trend toward interactivity and gameplay in location-based attractions, Game Designers have increasing opportunities to play in a fun and challenging new business. For some, this can be a fun side hustle; for others, it can offer a doorway into a whole new career they may never have considered.
