Lead Designer and Writer at Bethesda, Emil Pagliarulo, who worked on million-dollar titles such as Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Morrowind, will be visiting Copenhagen tomorrow as part of the Copenhagen Games Festival’s STORY Conference to talk about the secrets behind his one-liners and storytelling in Bethesda games. 

In Copenhagen, this week is all about games, as the capital is turned into a hub for game designers, programmers, graphic artists, business experts, and gamers for 5 days straight.

It all started today with the Copenhagen Games Conference and Spilprisen 2016, and ends with the world’s biggest game jam, Nordic Game Jam 2016, this weekend. In-between is a wide variety of events and workshops celebrating game development in Denmark.

In total, the Copenhagen Games Festival hopes to see more than 1000 participants.


One of these events, the STORY conference, takes place Thursday April 7th at Pumpehuset in Copenhagen and is organized by InfinIT.
