World building has always been an essential element in Fantasy and Science Fiction storytelling.

Through two case studies (on currently in production projects) we’ll explore how HBO, the show creators and Elastic have extended the world of Game of Thrones to create emotional, layered, contextual immersive experiences that engage fans during the “long winter”.
