Top Video Game Creators Featured in 10-Part Interview Series

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences has produced a 10-part digital series about storytelling in video games and how developers do their thing. Featured are a bunch of rockstars that include Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear), Neil Druckmann (The Last of Us), and David Cage (Heavy Rain). It’s all set to debut on the AIAS YouTube channel on the 15th. Judging by the trailer, this should provide a good look at some of the companies’ motion capture studios and what modelers and animators are working with these days.

Fifteen video-game luminaries will share their tricks of the trade in "The Game Makers: Inside Story," a digital interview series funded by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences aimed at inspiring a new generation of game creators. The original 10-part digital series will debut Feb. 15 on the AIAS YouTube channel and its website,, one week before the org’s 20th annual D.I.C.E. Awards ceremony Feb. 23 in Las Vegas honoring the industry’s top games, individuals and development teams of the year. Each 10-15 minute episode of "The Game Makers: Inside Story" explores the creative process of crafting narratives for notable games and their iconic characters.
