Sagas focus lies on the most fundamental and creative level: the stage of developing storytelling ideas and organizing them into workable interactive concepts. I took part in this workshop, because of my interest in game-design – which was lead by Ernest W. Adams (former E.A. Game-Designer) and Jessica Mulligan for a week. The event mainly focused on Game-Design in the Gaming industry – focusing on both Multiplayer and Single Player games. I found it to be an extremely helpful and informative game workshop.
