Game Republic To Host Panel at Develop

Game Republic will be hosting a very special narrative design panel at Develop:Brighton from 9-11 July. The session will widen the audience for the very popular panel that started Game Republic’s 2024 programme in January that forms part of the event programme supported by Official Partners Red Kite Games, Barclays and Escape Technology.

Dr Jackie Mulligan who hosted the panel in January said “We got such positive feedback for the panel and had so many insights shared by our amazing panelists, that we wanted to share it more widely. It is great to be bringing it to Develop and we are thrilled to be selected as one of the panels at the event in 2024”

Tips And Insights on Narrative Design from Leading Writers

Award-winning writers Rhianna Pratchett, Charles Cecil (Revolution, Broken Sword), Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Marvel) and Judi Alston (Dreaming Methods) share their experiences, insights, learnings and tips for creating high quality narrative games with Dr Jackie Mulligan (Game Republic). The panelists will explore how to make narrative games on a budget, techniques to explore character, using new technology like AI and VR to enhance storytelling in games and trends in narrative design in particular stories being interpreted across multiple media. The session will also include a Q&A.

Jackie adds “For Develop attendees considering the programme, this session will share tips on ways to create story-based games on a budget, techniques to develop characters in games and address the opportunities and challenges of taking stories into different media.”
