Art & Tech Social: Dan Hett, digital + interactive fiction

Aug 16, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dan Hett is an award-winning writer, artist and games developer from Manchester, whose career has taken him through creating creative technology and artworks for the likes of Havas, the BBC, Sky, TATE and the Open Data Institute. He’s also the creative director of indie games studio PASSENGER, who recently released their first large-scale work CLOSED HANDS – an interactive fiction project exploring radicalisation, extremism, and identity politics in the UK, which launched in March 2021. Dan has also written extensively on extremism and digital culture for The Guardian, The Observer, and the BBC.

 

This is the second of two short workshops leading you through interactive fiction tools. This workshop focuses on Ink (a narrative scripting language for games), there is another workshop on 11 August focusing on Twine (interactive fiction game making tool)
