Session Name:

Constructing IMMORTALITY: A Fireside Chat with Sam Barlow


This year's IGF excellence in narrative winning IMMORTALITY is an FMV game, sure, but its live action narrative about fictional actress Marissa Marcel is a deep dive into the creative process that pulls out truths about image, art, and the human cost of making entertainment. This fireside chat aims to illuminate Barlow and team's own creative process, discussing influences, inspirations, challenges, and practical design advice for other makers looking to explore more of the "video" side of video games.
