Story Engines this Friday

by Andrew Stern · , 9:47 pm

A reminder of Friday’s symposium at Stanford (which we originally posted about last October): Story Engines: A Public Program on Storytelling and Computer Games. Includes a panel “The Big Picture: Do Games Need Stories?” with Haden Blackman of LucasArts, Sheldon Pacotti of Ion Storm, and Will Wright of Maxis/EA.

The symposium is part of the larger Fictional Worlds, Virtual Experiences: Storytelling and Computer Games project at the Stanford Humanities Lab, and in conjuction with the “Bang the Machine” exhibit at Yerba Buena in San Francisco.
