Game Writers Conference 2006

by Andrew Stern · , 1:50 pm

The second annual Game Writers Conference is happening September 6-7 in Austin, co-located with the online game focused Austin Game Conference, and a Casual Games Conference.

A bunch of writer/designers will be presenting there, from a variety of successful games. The schedule is comprised primarily of presentations on the current approaches of writing for games.

I wrote the organizers a while ago about potentially presenting Fa├žade there, but I think the conference is focused more on proven, existing techniques than experimental, bleeding-edge ones.

    What? Gee, if I’d known about it, I would have gone last year. It’s about time more things start happening around here.

  2. Rob Wheeler Says:

    Oh, it’s $400. Maybe that’s why I didn’t go.

    Have you read the SIG’s book on Game Narrative? It exemplifies exactly the hesitation you describe, but in systematic structural form.
