Rhianna Pratchett has been writing for over 15 years starting out writing features and columns on games for the likes of PZ Zone Magazine and The Guardian. After moving into script writing and narrative design, her work on Heavenly Sword was nominated for a BAFTA and she later won a Writers’ Guild of Great Britain ‘Best Videogame Script’ award for Overlord.

Rhianna joins BAFTA award-winning Brenda Romero, Gareth Glover from Ubisoft, Liz Mercuri from Unity and the creator of the iconic Doom series John Romero. Throughout the day, experts from around the world will cover a range of topics from turning game jam submissions into fully realised games, all the way to final user testing.

Aside from the talks, the conference will also showcase a multitude of indie titles from mobile games to virtual reality. Visitors can play, leave feedback and vote on their favourites from the day, as well as meet local studios and mingle with like-minded gamers.
