Bill Harms, Narrative Director at Hangar 13 and Lead Writer of Mafia III’s award-winning story. Previously Bill was credited as the writer of the first Infamous as well as a number of comic books and graphic novels, something he remains actively engaged with today.
Join Bill Harms, Narrative Director at Hangar 13, for a discussion and presentation on how he and the team at Hangar 13 created the primary characters in Mafia III, including their motivations and political beliefs, with never-before-seen deleted scenes from the game and casting footage. The discussion will also cover how the characters evolved during development and how elements outside of narrative, including design and the actors themselves, helped shape what you see in the game.

I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
