Brunette Games Took On GDC in 2022!

GDC

By Jenna Hume

Dexter and I had the privilege of attending this year's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, CA, specifically the Narrative Summit. GDC is an annual conference for the game development community, with lectures, an expo, and networking opportunities. This was a first for both of us, as the 2020 conference Dexter was supposed to attend ended up being canceled (as we all probably know). So we arrived in San Francisco with excitement and anticipation! 

GDC was a truly inspiring experience. Every person we met came with an exciting new story to hear. The sessions we attended taught us new things about game design and narrative that will surely come in handy in our work.

All of the sessions we attended were helpful, but here are the few we’d like to particularly shout-out: Dan Gabriel’s talk on the narrative design in Lost Words: Beyond the Page; Michelle Clough’s take on writing romance and using kindness coins vs. a chemistry casino; Evan Skolnick’s storytelling workshop; and Lucien Soulban’s tips for surviving the monetization of games. These sessions taught us a lot about player psychology, handling heavy topics in gaming, and more. We thank all the speakers for their time and insight shared at GDC.

We also met various writers, designers, and developers, including new and current clients. It was great to finally see everyone face-to-face and have fruitful conversations. These are connections that we hope to continue to cultivate over the next several months.

 Here are some of the key highlights from our trip: 

  • Experiencing the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time between sessions;
  • Chatting with other attendants in the beautiful Yerba Buena Gardens outside the convention center; 
  • Attending a writers’ meet-up, where we connected with aspiring writers from across the world;
  • And the TransPerfect party, where we closed out our time at GDC, with good company, music, and food.

Overall, our time at GDC was a whirlwind of a week, filled with new insight and friendships. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and we hope to return to GDC!
