Description

Join Wilbert Roget and IGDA Seattle at HBO Interactive for our July 2018 event!

In this talk, we'll be discussing Wil's approach to conveying the WWII setting respectfully while matching the franchise's contemporary pacing and push for believable, relatable characters.

Wilbert Roget, II is a veteran composer in the video game industry. He joined LucasArts as a staff composer in 2008, where he scored several games in the Star Wars universe, including Star Wars: The Old Republic and Star Wars: First Assault. He later became a freelance writer, scoring Call of Duty: WWII, Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Dead Island 2, Anew: The Distant Light and other indie and AAA titles. His scores have earned him several awards and nominations from the Game Audio Network Guild, the ASCAP Composers Choice Awards, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (D.I.C.E. Awards), and others.
