A useful podcast for Train2Game students

As I was on my way into the Train2Game office this morning, I was partaking in two usual activities – doing my very best not to get run over and  listening to the latest gaming news podcasts in order to write relevant and interesting blogs for you Train2Game Games Designer, Games Developer and Games Art & Animation students.

This morning, I was listening to the GameSpot UK podcast which this week is especially relevant to Train2Game students? Why? Because it features video game script writer and narrative designer Rhianna Pratchett. She’s a veteran of writing scripts for games which include Mirror’s Edge, Heavenly Sword, and the Overlord series.

In the GameSpot UK podcast she talks about writing dialogue and narrative for games, incorporating humour and how she broke into the field of Games Design.

So, Train2Game students, I highly recommend that you listen to this weeks GamesSpot UK podcast if you want a useful incite into the industry. Rhianna starts talking about Games Design about 25 minutes into the programme.

As usual, leave your thoughts here or on the Train2Game forum.
