Clay Murphy who currently works as the Senior Writer at the studio attended a panel at Comic-Con@Home. Whereas Mikko Rautalahti and Eevi Korhonen joined The Writers' Guild of Great Britain in their week-long celebration of narrative in games. Below you can find further details on the panels and where you can watch.


Pixel Stories — Reimagining Video Game Narrative

Up first, Comic-Con! This year, San Diego Comic-Con was looking pretty different but was still incredibly exciting. While the show couldn't go ahead as planned, organisers brought the show, Comic-Con@Home 2020, to attendees through online panels and talks featured on their YouTube channel.  One of those talks was Pixel Stories — Reimagining Video Game Narrative which tackled the topics such as character development and world creation. For the talk, Control's Clay Murphy was joined by Aaron Contreras, Amelia Gray, and Jennie Kong. The panel was chaired by John Wie.
