With gamers increasingly demanding compelling plots, emotionally engaging stories and believable, three dimensional characters, it’s never been more important for game developers to work with writers who understand how to weave compelling storytelling and character development into gameplay and who understand the complexities and demands of modern day game design. That’s where BAFTA winner* and two-time Writers' Guild of Great Britain Award Nominated** writer Martin Korda comes in.
Since 2005, Martin has become one of the most sought after scriptwriters, narrative designers and story consultants within the industry. He has been the writer/co-writer of numerous critically acclaimed blockbusters including FIFA 19 The Journey: Champions, Destiny 2, FIFA 18 The Journey: Hunter Returns, Destiny: The Taken King, FIFA 17 The Journey, Fable: The Journey, Need for Speed: Rivals, Black & White 2, No Man’s Sky, The Movies and many more. To date, Martin has written on games that have sold in excess of 100 million copies worldwide and grossed over $5 billion.
Martin is also a published author and former journalist and has been a multi-time finalist and semi-finalist in numerous prestigious Hollywood screenwriting contests with his action adventure script TX, including the Page International Screenwriting Awards, StoryPros International Screenplay Contest, Screenplay Festival, WriteMovies.com, Extreme Screenwriting Contest and All Access Screenwriting Competition.
In 2012, Martin was invited by BAFTA to become a member of the Academy in recognition of his work in the games industry.
