Sup Holmes points and clicks with Jane Jensen

12:00 PM on 03.09.2014 // Jonathan Holmes

Get to know the people that make great videogames

Today on Sup Holmes we welcome Jane Jensen to the program. Jane has been working on games that put story and characterization at the forefront since the 1980's, working on established series like Police Quest and King's Quest for Sierra, before creating her own titles like the Gabriel Knight series and Moebius. Many past Sup Holmes guests, like Gravity Ghosts's Erin Robinson, count Jane among their biggest influences. We're lucky to have her. 

We'll be talking to Jane about how she got started in games, the rise and fall of story-focused adventure games, the differences between writing for novels and games, the old Sierra Vs. LucasArts rivalry, carving out a space in games that is focused less on violent interactions and more on engaging with people and things in more nuanced says, The Silver Lining, what she can tell me on Voodoo, CD-ROMS, and a lot more. Join us at 1pm PST/4pm EST for the full conversation!
