Recording: The Art of Game Storytelling and Worldbuilding, Mar 13, 2023

Video game narratives have become more engaging and sophisticated than ever before, but behind these narratives come the return of IRL experiences that inspired it all. Yes, we’re talking about role playing games, and the millions of people behind the fandom.
This session explores narrative in games from the perspective of the voice actor. We will discuss the impact TTRPGs like D&D are having on video games, music, and podcasts, and how they are changing the way we tell stories.
