W.IN – aka ‘Women In’ – is London Games Festival’s networking event for women in games and other creative sectors. As part of a kick-ass calendar of gaming-related events across the capital, we were chosen to interview Laura Taranto (Lead Producer at King) at The Hospital Club, London.
Aimed at aspiring and veteran gaming professionals alike, the event provided a platform for gaming superheroines to share their stories, careers advice (and their precise opinion on 'Grumpy Cat').
Other WI.IN 2017 speakers included: Erin O'Brien (Gram Games), Violet Berlin (Bad Influence! & The Royal Observatory), Fran Scott (CBBC), and Ellie Gibson (Go 8 Bit, BBC Technology & Scummy Mummies).
In their words
"Over the last two years the event has hosted talks and panels featuring expert developers, writers, producers and presenters from a range of backgrounds and ages - some of them rising stars, others established and award-winning… all of them with impressive impact and potential in games.”
