April 15 2021
17:00 - 18:00, online event
In this talk, Verena Kyratzes will explore the process of creating the narrative for Serious Sam 4, with particular attention paid to the challenges of engaging with a pre-existing franchise and the advantages and disadvantages a game writer faces when working with heightened language and unusual tones. It will also offer a glimpse into the more mundane aspects of adjusting an interactive narrative to the complexities of a heavily gameplay-driven experience.
Verena Kyratzes is a writer and indie game developer from Germany. Among other things, she illustrated a children’s book, wrote the novelette Life Support, the terrifying visual novel Zombie and Elephants, and translated the acclaimed metaphysical puzzle game The Talos Principle.
