Games Writing: The Philosophy of Interactive Horror

Monday, 24 April 2017 - 7:00pm
Cineworld, Cardiff

Join us for an evening's discussion of storytelling in games. Talespinners, the Cardiff-based story-for-games company, will give a talk on using interactivity to evoke horror and other emotions. This will be followed by a fireside chat on the subject chaired by the philosophers behind RPG: Relating Philosophy and Gaming.

Talespinners specialises in providing story for video games of all genres, and for wider interactive media. Their work includes console, PC, and mobile games; VR, live events, street games, film, and prose fiction. They have a particular interest in the psychology of horror, having created horror games, books, films and live experiences.

RPG: Relating Philosophy and Gaming is an engagement project from Cardiff University that runs events exploring video games and philosophy.
