Southern Stories in Video Game Development

The South Carolina Lowcountry and Coastal Georgia provide a rich historical-cultural context for storytelling—not just for books, movies, and television, but for video games as well. Let Brian Canada take you on a fun and fascinating exploration of how regional history, Gullah-Geechee folklore, and other uniquely Southern traditions have influenced the design of recent video game projects, including Bugs ‘N Boo Hags, a locally-developed indie game selected for PAX Rising at PAX South 2016.
