The Dylan Thomas Centre


This hands-on workshop held over two afternoons will explore the trials and tribulations of crafting narrative experiences for computer games.

The workshop will identify the many pitfalls that will be encountered during the early stages of story construction, and reveal the best practices used in the industry to help create a Hollywood feature film feel to a videogame screenplay.

The workshop will explore classic storytelling methodologies, from fiction and prose writing to feature and television screenwriting and how they apply to the 20th century’s newest form of entertainment fiction.

Session 1 will focus on The 360 Degree Screenplay and Session 2 on Creating the In-Game Narrative Experience

No previous experience necessary (not even gaming). Just an open mind to creating new worlds, new characters, and new dramatic moments in an open world where your audience leads the way.

Please bring your own laptop or tablet.
Age 14 and above.
