TEDx Transmedia is very excited to announce that world-renowned games writer Rhianna Pratchett will be joining us as a speaker in Rome.

Rhianna’s games writing titles include Heavenly Sword, Mirror’s Edge and the entire Overlord series. Most recently, she has been announced as the lead writer on the new Tomb Raider re-boot, which is due to be released by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos/Square Enix in March 2013.

 

As one of the most influential women in the games industry, Rhianna is concerned with how to improve the narrative potential of games and how we take the road to future media…..

 

Rhianna joins a diverse range of inspiring speakers that include philosophers, activists, journalists, artists, authors, educators and digital creatives.

 

TEDx Transmedia founder and curator, Nicoletta Iacobacci, said: “What really caught my attention with Rhianna was her use of the term ‘narrative paramedic.’ I wanted to add a ‘disruptor’ to the programme and Rhianna was the perfect choice. She is a brilliant writer and narrative designer and will bring a fresh and unique vision to TEDx Transmedia 2012.”
