The team from the award-winning thatgamecompany studio discover their unique approach to story, art, animation, sound, and gameplay design when developing emotionally driven video games including Flower, Journey, and now the new global social adventure, Sky: Light Awaits. Moderator Catrina Dennis (games reporter, Comicbook.com) talks to Yui Tanabe (art manager), Avi Yeyni (senior animator), Kyle Holdwick (gameplay engineer), Ritsu Mizutani (senior sound designer), Jennie Kong (story writer), and Robert Hornbek (community development) about the new game. From crafting beautifully artistic in-game worlds to minimalist gameplay and compassionate player experiences, the panel will focus on the creative considerations and challenges to making innovative games as an independent studio.
