The Game Makers



Welcome to The Game Makers: Inside Story series where we explore the unique process of storytelling, design and directing in a special 10-part digital series.  

Told from the perspective of 15 video game luminaries (behind some of the biggest franchises and influential indie breakouts of the past decade), audiences will learn what it takes to bring a story to life on the game screen directly from Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid), Neil Druckmann (The Last of Us), Kiki Wolfkill (Halo), Jade Raymond (Star Wars Battlefront), Jenova Chen (Journey), Amy Hennig (Uncharted), Sean Vanaman (Firewatch), Ru Weerasuriya (The Order:1886), Ian Dallas (What Remains of Edith Finch), Dominic Robilliard (Entwined), Matt Korba (King’s Quest), Will Byles (Until Dawn), Brian Hastings (Ratchet & Clank), Mary DeMarle (Deus Ex) and David Cage (Heavy Rain).

Set to inspire a new generation of storytellers, each 10-15 minute episode delves into: story development, writing process, character and emotion, narrative design, structure, directing and performance, environmental story, virtual and augmented reality, social themes, and the future of interactive story. 

Developed in association with Beyond-FX and Blindlight, the series is produced by Wonderstruck Entertainment and the AIAS. It is directed and created by writer/director, Jennie Kong.
