Ed Stern Nominated for Writers Guild of America Award
Every year, the Writers Guild of America selects what it thinks are the most outstanding feats of writing in movie, television, and new media. What makes this year's nominations particularly special is that our very own Ed 'BongoBoy' Stern is among them, joining an illustrious group of people that includes Woody Allen, Adam Sorkin and fellow London developer Rocksteady Studios.
Ed is up in the Best Videogame Writing category for his efforts on Brink, which not only featured a staggering 26,000 lines of dialogue, but was also supported by a copious amount of backstory, timelines, biographies, and all manner of other supporting Writer's Produce. On top of that, Ed is the only person on the entire list that somehow managed to get their nickname on there.
The winners will be announced at the 64th Annual Writers Guild Awards in Los Angeles on February 19. Many big huge congratulations, Ed!
