Leah Hoyer is passionate about making story experiences. She recently joined Telltale Games as their Vice President of Creative. Prior to that, she was head of narrative at both ArenaNet (Guild Wars 2) and Xbox Studios. She recently launched ThePlayersStory.com to share insights on creating interactive story, and hope that it will become a place where folks who love game narrative can learn and share ideas.
Also, Telltale Games is holding an innovative event this March where people can learn more about a career in writing or design at Telltale. Attendees will learn from Telltale creatives what it is like to work at the company, and how they make compelling stories for their industry-leading, narrative-driven experiences. Then, folks will have the chance to put those learnings into practice as they create a scene of an interactive story.
