Show, Don't Tell: The Power of Subtext in Games

Art director Jeff Spoonhower (Borderlands 2, Bioshock 2, Saints Row, Uncharted: Golden Abyss) and composer Wilbert Roget, II (Call of Duty: WWII, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Destiny 2: Forsaken, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris) will discuss the unique methods of subtextual storytelling used in their debut indie game, Anew: The Distant Light. Will and Jeff will compare and contrast their use of visuals, sound design, and music with techniques used in other "cinematic" AAA and indie games.
