The Game Rats ( present a collection of talks on storytelling in games, and a chance to mingle with other games folk over some drinks and pizza.

We'll be joined by Florencia Minuzzi, from Tea-Powered Games, with her talk on conversation systems and her experience of designing and writing games dialogue.

As well as Gaspard Pelurson, PhD in Media & Cultural studies, his talk explores the stories we tell about games - in particular the 'Gay Ryona' (NSFW) subculture on YouTube, and how this queers core notions of fighting games.

Third speaker announced soon!
