Three Rensselaer students from the Introduction to Game Storytelling module are Gold Winners in the 2017 Game Developers Conference annual Game Narrative Review Competition.

Maria Salmon, Janice Ho, and Fanghong Dong (pictured) are presenting their posters at the major industry conference in San Francisco this week, on their respective narrative analyses of the games I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Transistor, and Tomb Raider.

The Game Narrative Review is a global competition, judged by a board of industry professionals. The three are students of Dr. Maurice Suckling, from the Department of Communication and Media, through the Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences (GSAS) program of the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.
