Adriana Skarped added to Festival of Games lineup

Lead actor and designer on Emmy award-winning Interactive TV Service to speak at event

The NLGD has announced that Adriana Skarped has been added to the Festival of Games speaker lineup.

Skarped worked as lead actor and designer on the participatory television series Sanningen om Marika (The Truth About Marika), which was awarded an Emmy for best Interactive TV Service in April of this year.

Swedish television subcontracted The company P to produce the alternate reality, multi-platform media production which offers online and live action role-playing experiences in parallel with traditional TV drama.

"Over the years Adriana has worked on various interesting projects that are not only innovative, but also very inspiring," said Seth van der Meer, chairman of the NLGD Foundation. "We are looking forward to her lecture at the Festival."

The NLGD Festival of Games takes place June 14-22 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
