Session Description: Transmedia storytelling is about immersing players in storyworlds that span across media formats, and its quickly gaining momentum, but is there more than a simple fad here? Just what is it, how does it work and why is it important to video games? Answers to these questions and more will be fielded by some of the biggest players in the game industry working on this new form of storytelling.
