After years working on titles like 'Jade Empire' and the various entries of the 'Dragon Age' series, former Creative Director Mike Laidlaw details some of the most important lessons he's learned about how narrative fits within games and how writers or narrative designers tasked with bringing stories to life can gel into cohesive storytellers, while still working well with the larger game team.


Attendees will hear a short list of the most important things a narrative team can do to quickly get up to speed, maintain a clear vision, and communicate well with other disciplines.
