Train2Game news: BAFTA Games Writers Panel podcast now available

Train2Game students who couldn’t attend the BAFTA Games Writers Panel at the end of October can now listen to the whole discussion via podcast.

The Games Writers Panel featured games writers Rhianna Pratchett, Jim Swallow and Ed Stern, and was chaired by Andrew Walsh. The panel discussed narrative in video games, so while it’ll be of particular interest to Train2Game Game Designers, it should provide interesting listening for anyone interested in video games.

Listen to the BAFTA writing for games panel debate podcast here. (It does contain some strong language)

When Train2Game attended the BAFTA Games Writers Panel we were fortunate to get interviews with two of the speakers, both of whom spoke in-depth about game design and offered Train2Game students advice on getting into the industry.

You can read the Train2Game blog interview with Deus Ex: Human Revolution writer Jim Swallow here.

Meanwhile, the Train2Game blog interview with Brink writer Ed Stern is here.

More recently than the Games Writers Panel, the Train2Game blog spoke to Bioware co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka & Dr. Greg Zeschuk at the BAFTA Bioware Lecture.
