Respawn, one of the hottest game development events in Europe is right around the corner (August 15th+16th in Cologne), and CRYENGINE is proud to be a “Legendary Partner” for this year’s iteration. But we have a lot more to offer than that, including a booth, a workshop and a talk.
We will have a small booth in the showfloor area so drop by if you have any questions about working with CRYENGINE, at Crytek, or what exciting updates we will release soon. We hope to see you next week!

Storytelling VR - Back to the Drawing Board (Dr. Fasih Sayin, Game Narrative Designer)
Tuesday, August 16th – 12.30-13.30
Just as we thought we have finally learned how to tell compelling stories in video games along comes a game changer: Virtual Reality. On the surface it sounds great with its superior ability to augment the feeling of immersion. But then you quickly realize practically nothing you know actually works and everything you know is out of date. That is when you have to go back to the roots of narratology re-evaluate what a story is and what it's supposed to do and how using the unique tools VR provides you can still tell a compelling story. This session will discuss ways of redefining the ways we think about the term "Story" and focus on solving VR specific problems and turning them into advantages and tools.
