Session Name:

How to Make Your Game Just Completely Hilarious: The Stanley Parable


William Pugh (The Stanley Parable) takes you into a world outside of GDC to a land bereft of seriousness and ethical considerations. He hates how games do comedy and he also hates writing descriptions in the third person. How can we escape this awful trend of procedural humour simulators and get back to the way things were always supposed to be: Writers writing jokes for other video game writers. Octodad and Surgeon Simulator reign supreme in the court of youtube celebrities. Let's work together to usurp them and replace them with ourselves. Watch William Pugh desperately attempt to deconstruct The Stanely Parable to find an excuse for its success. Be amazed as he lists pre-prepared top tips for making your game funny. Leave in awe at his complementary speaker pass.
