From Fighting Fantasy to The Witcher: How Narrative Design in Gaming Enhances Storytelling

15 March, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

A BAFTA Games panel discussing the art of narrative and storytelling from page to screen and back again.

Andrzej Sapkowski (author of The Witcher novel series) and Ian Livingstone CBE (co-creator of the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series) are joined by fellow creative industry guests to discuss the role of narrative design in game storytelling.

With video game sales at an all-time high, we ask the question: what is the next chapter?  And what is gaming’s mandate as a creative platform in the world of storytelling?

Full panel now confirmed:

  • Ian Livingstone, co-creator of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks
  • Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the Witcher novels
  • Meg Jayanth, Writer and Digital Producer (80 Days)
  • Chris Gardiner, Narrative Director at Failbetter Games
  • Panel host: Simon Parkin, journalist, New Yorker & The Guardian

This event is now sold out.
