Games Played: Too Many To Count

Everyone loves a good game, especially if it's jam-packed with intense swashbuckling action, death-defying protagonists, and deeply intriguing origin stories. Enter award-winning games writer Rhianna Pratchett, the creative genius behind popular game narratives like Tomb Raider and Overlord, and a recent author of a Fighting Fantasy adventure novel. In this meet-the-gamewriter session, Rhianna explores what makes a compelling (game) storyline, and how she turned one of life's greatest pleasures into an iconic moment in gaming history. #GLHF

This programme is made possible with the support of the US Embassy and includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
