Overview: Writers' rooms have been a staple of TV production for more than half a century, but they're relatively new to game development. Veteran cross-media writer Antony Johnston (ATOMIC BLONDE, DEAD SPACE, RESIDENT EVIL VILLAGE) has been in, and run, several such rooms. He explains how to recruit and run a successful writers' room, why it's more than just a writing team and why you should use one if you don't already.
