GDC Narrative Summit 2015 – Writing Healthy Fanservice

My second talk at GDC Narrative Summit in 2015 was entitled “Desire is Not a Dirty Word: Writing Healthy Fanservice.” It emphasized the creative and social possibilities of games using sex appeal in a non-objectifying way, and gave a six-step process to writing “fanservice” characters that are diverse, fleshed-out, interesting, and hot.

Like 2014, the talk was well-received and was the second highest rated talk at the GDC Narrative Summit; it also gained press attention in North America, Europe, and Japan.
