In Conversation With Brenda Romero (Hosted by Violet Berlin) - Friday 23rd March 2018
Violet Berlin (ITV's Bad Influence) will be in conversation with the talented and prolific Brenda Romero (Wizardry & Jagged Alliance), who is joining us for the evening to talk about her life in gaming and will also be taking part in an audience Q&A session.
Brenda is an award winning game designer, artist and Fulbright scholar who entered the video game industry in 1981. As a designer, she has contributed to many seminal titles, including the Wizardry and Jagged Alliance series and titles in the Ghost Recon and Dungeons & Dragons franchises. Away from the machine, her analog series of six games, The Mechanic is the Message, has drawn national and international acclaim, particularly Train and Síochán Leat (The Irish Game) which is presently housed in the National Museum of Play.
In 2017, she was awarded the Development Legend award at the Develop conference in the UK. In 2015, she won the coveted Ambassador’s Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards. In 2014, she received a Fulbright award to study Ireland’s game industry, academic and government policies. In 2013, she was named one of the top 10 game developers by http://Gamasutra.com and Develop magazine listed her among the 25 people who changed games in 2013. Romero co-owns Romero Games.
We'll be open late after the talk for people to hang out and play some of the games that Brenda has worked on over the years.
