"Every eighth person in the world has played a video game from Sweden and now Värmland is taking the lead in moving the industry forward. "

Welcome to an experience in nordic storytelling and game design.

Our hosts for this event are  David Mervik, Narrative Director at Tarsier Studios (Little Nightmare 2) and Leif Stinnerbom Creative Director at Västanå teater.


The two will lead  the  masterclass in narrative game design based on narrative analysis, game design analysis and hands-on prototyping. 


The Great Journey and  Västanå teater invite you to the first-ever Masterclass in Narrative Game Design in Sweden. 

A fresh approach to narrative design boosting the cultural capital of the games industry. 


We want to push things forward, connect and inspire people making use of the mythical spirit of  Värmland.
